PARALLEL DEVELOPMENT OF SHIP PRODUCTION FACILITIES AND INFORMATION SYSTEMS

The paper deals principally with the Shipyard's initial efforts to organize a program for the development of Information and Control Systems and the evolution of an agreement with Kockums to use their Information Systems as a framework for development in Harlands. The development program for applying the systems used by Kockums to Harland and Wolff's Shipyard is described, including the means of achieving cooperation among all the people and departments involved. The resulting Harland Information System is described indicating the elements that are similar to Kockums and other elements that have been observed to work satisfactorily in the Swedish yard, but have not been fully implemented in the Belfast Yard.
