DfP has been implemented in Paramarine by linking the ‘functional design’ with production processes to generate feasibility and costing data associated with a particular build strategy. Different shipyard facilities can therefore be taken into account and the specific construction costs for a particular ship or submarine design ascertained. Such cost and capability information is deliberately not ‘hardwired’ as it is proprietary and varies considerably according to the facilities and production processes of a given shipyard. Bulk carrier hold DfP structural definition Engine and associated system...
