Abstract

Nowadays, simulation and Life Cycle Cost (LCC) assessment becomes more and more important in shipbuilding industry. In order to survive in the competitive market environment, manufacturers now have to consider reducing the cost of the entire life cycle of a product, called LCC. This research was initiated with the idea of developing a methodology/framework to be able to assess the life cycle
cost/earning of production and maintenance/repair with respect to the scantlings structural optimization variables to be used during the conceptual ship design stage. Three main modules as been implemented during this project: A life cycle cost/earning of production and maintenance/repair, a detailed Discrete Event Simulation (DES) for production and scheduling and a design robustness of the structural solution related to various fabrication and operational parameters. These three modules as well as the main results are briefly presented here.
