The productivity of a shipyard depends on how efficiently and systematically its limited resources are managed and used. Korean shipyards, the most competitive in the world, have developed and operate their own production management systems to attain high productivity, each of which reflects the unique characteristics of a specific company. Recently, research on simulation methods to enhance production management systems has been gaining popularity. Production management based on simulations rejects decision-making based on experience and intuition and values the establishment of improvement methods based on quantitative and concrete data. In this article, simulation is applied to the work plan as part of the production planning in shipyards. To this end, the work planning processes and planning systems are analyzed. Based on this analysis, a simulation model and application system are suggested. By using the results obtained in this study, it is expected that shipyards can construct cycles for establishing, simulating, and analyzing work plans, enabling the establishment of more precise production plans.
