The paper describes general principles of hull production, planning and scheduling, and suggests a method of sequencing activities from contract award through the erection of the ship. The concept of a unit production plan as the major information center for the structural planning developments is introduced. In the area of planning for parts fabrication, a computer-aided system is discussed that transforms a conventional fabrication schedule into a facility loading projection along with associated leveling and facility utilization prediction. In connection with assembly planning, advantages of special shop drawings which include dimensional control procedures are explained. Additional topics included in the paper are parts nesting, steel ordering, steel receipt and storage, as well as hull drafting.
