Most processes in many shipyards involve a large amount of work in progress at every work stage. Efficient construction, such as shortening work periods on production systems and reducing stocks of work in progress, therefore, is essential in improving the earnings of a shipyard. Digital transformation (DX) can be considered to ensure these improvements. In this research, as a first step of applying DX, we investigate a more efficient construction system based on tact time control management to standardize units in the sub-assembly process and a conveyor line production system using a three-dimensional work simulation model.
