This thesis presents a methodology to improve the effectiveness of a ship design process. This methodology consists of performing systems engineering by means of a tailored framework and subsequent guideline. The first is a tool for designers to identify and define operational objectives and functional requirements of (sub)systems, to make...

This article aims at finding a match between Quick Response Manufacturing (QRM) and the preprocessing stage of shipbuilding. Preprocessing is the first stage of the ship production process, where steel plates are cut into parts, that are ground and sorted to build stiffened panels and ships’ sections. Quick Response Manufacturing is a management...

An improvement study to the pre-processing process of Damen Shipyards Galati (DSGa) is performed since benchmark analysis shows that the current pre-processing process underperforms, compared to industry peers. The objective is to increase DSGa’s throughput and decrease space utilisation, such that pre-processing facilities S1 and S1a can be...

Accurate cost estimations are important for ship production companies such as Royal IHC. The research discussed is based on a feasibility study for a CBR cost estimation method. The current cost estimation method at IHC is a top-down price-to-win analogy cost estimation. This method uses mainly the weight of the ship as an input variable for the...

Western shipyards have to distinguish themselves by complex ships with short delivery times. This entails that in most cases the production already starts while the engineering has not even been finished. If the pipes and cables are not routed when the steel plate are cut by the CNC machine, the associated penetrations have to be cut manually...

There is a never-ending quest to search for better ways of planning and controlling projects. Currently the majority of all projects are planned with the critical path method and controlled using earned value management. This way of planning and controlling projects has been used for decades now and can be seen as traditional project management ...

Conversion projects are considered as a growing market within the new build and in particular the repair market within the maritime industry, due to ever more demanding environmental regulations. A development that Royal Niestern Sander (KNS) embraces and wants to exploit further. Although conversion projects are already being executed,...

Digitalization helps companies to become more efficient, therefore new developments should be followed closely. One of these developments is the use of 3D models. An increasing amount of information can be processed by the 3D models. This research will look into one of these developments: Model Based Definition. With Model Based Definition (MBD)...

Recently the buying power of customers has increased as a result of globalisation forcing anufacturers including shipbuilders to produce products with wider variety at lower delivery times. This research aims to optimise the traditional production strategy applied at Damen shipyards for the production of standard tugs. Three levels of...
