This paper describes how a formal manufacturing environment, as defined by the American Production and Inventory Control Society (APICS), compares with modern shipbuilding techniques. Formal manufacturing, through a product-based build strategy, provides a framework for integrating contract scheduling, design development, material purchasing, inventory control, production capacity planning, and production control. An understanding of formal manufacturing provides a foundation for understanding modern shipbuilding techniques.
