Competitive engineering and production in shipbuilding

Objective



In June 1996 Industry, gathered in the European Maritime Industries Forum (MIF), presented The Maritime Industry R&D Master Plan -elaborated by MIF R&D Co-ordination Group- which addressed its R&D needs in a coordinated approach and indicated its key technological priority areas with a short-medium term vision. Among the most outstanding, there is the key area Competitive engineering and production in shipbuilding. Actually, the Shipbuilding Industry started up -led by COREDES, the R&D Committee of CESA (the European Shipbuilders Association)- an R&D Structuration Action devoted to the co-ordination of the implementation of the Master Plan, gathering the needs of all the actors related to R&D in shipbuilding in a network focused on key technological priority areas (see scheme in the next page). This Thematic Network relevant to Competitive engineering and production in shipbuilding will cover the action already settled up by the industry in the same field, giving it a wider visibility and appointing it a clear position towards EC R&D actions. In detail, the aim of this Thematic Network will be the co-ordination of the R&D activities relevant to the Competitive engineering and production in shipbuilding of the widest possible net of Shipyards, Classification Societies, Shipowners, Research Institutes, Suppliers and Universities. Furthermore, a Representative of Maritime Industries Forum R&D Coordination Group shall be involved in this Thematic Network in order to ensure the right level of harmonisation with other thematic networks and MIF recommendations. For that purpose it is foreseen the constitution within the network partnership of a short and effective structure able to manage/ elaborate inputs from all the reference parties. In particular, 12 thematic areas are outlined for the implementation of the following 4 thematic network Tasks: - State-of-the-art analysis and review, - Transfer of Technology from other Industries, - Priority outline of future R&D in shipbuilding, - Co-ordination of R&D project implementation. The Thematic Network Co-ordination responsibility will be given to Chantiers de l'Atlantique, namely to the present Chairman of COREDES. This shall ensure a very large participation of Reference parties in the Shipbuilding world (Suppliers, Research Centres, Classification Societies, Universities, Yards, Shipowners) even if not directly involved in the partnership, will be implemented -as already provided for the issuing of the MP for the subject topics.
