THE IMPROVED NAVAL SHIPYARD MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEM-A POTENTIAL FOR INCREASED PRODUCTIVITY

The standard Naval Shipyard Management Information System (Shipyard MIS) in use at the eight United States Naval Shipyards is a computer-based system that processes data related to virtually every element of naval shipyard operations. It has had almost thirteen years of operation constantly growing and improving along the way. In early 1976 a major improvement program was initiated to modernize this batch processing oriented system to meet the needs of management for information in a more responsive manner. Some of the products of this improvement program offer the potential to shipyard managers for improving productivity. This paper describes some of these products and the challenges to shipyard management to utilize them effectively such that improved performance or productivity and significant cost savings can be realized.
