Abstract:This report is the result of a three month internship at Damen Shipyards Galati, Romania. During the internship research has been conducted into a part of the shipbuilding process: section building. This report consists of a product- and process description and a process analysis. Almost all of the information has been obtained by observing the yard and interviewing engineers and workers in Galati. This together with the expertise of de supervisors from Damen Gorinchem resulted in a advise report with both small and larger improvements. Improvements are for instance new planning methods, different building floors, implementation of guidelines for storing parts and changes in the structuring of documentation. All of the results of this research have been presented to the managing staff of the Yard and have been discussed with the workforce who will have to use the improvements. Both were sceptical at first but due to a lot of investment in the personal relations always kept an open mind towards the proposed changes. Although the implications of the changes need to be investigated in the field, this reports servers as a guideline for the future improvements of the section building process of the Damen Shipyards Galati yard.
