Application of set-based concurrent engineering to shipbuilding projects
MetadataShow full item record
In today s shipbuilding industry, companies are looking to make their design process moreefficient so they can have more economically viable and faster lead-times on their ships. Much of today s shipbuilding is being done through customized design, and companies like theUlstein Group evolve new designs from previously performed engineering. Recent researchprojects like SUSPRO are doing studies on how to implement more standardized design tomove the customer order decoupling point further along the process to ease and speed up future design. This thesis gives a theoretical insight and adds to this effort by suggesting product configurators and knowledge-based engineering (KBE) in accordance with the principles of set-based concurrent engineering (SBCE). It suggests two separate product configurators and looks into why it is important to store knowledge within a company. The work concludes with generaltips for implementation of SBCE in shipbuilding companies.
