Abstract

In this paper we describe the development and implementation of a tool that allows shipyard planners and construction managers to efficiently and effectively plan work area space within large manufacturing facilities. Currently, there are no software planning tools available to explicitly plan and schedule critical manufacturing space. The activity-based spatial scheduling tool described in this paper can be used by planners and construction management teams to easily reserve space within shipyard facilities for the construction and outfitting of large units. The Activity-Based Spatial Scheduling Tool gives users the ability to rapidly generate and compare multiple space allocation plans, with the ultimate goal of maintaining the critical ship construction schedule.
