One of the key elements of Lean Manufacturing principles is the reduction of Work In Progress. The aims of this project were two-fold: first to define the scope of what in-house computer software would be required to do, and second, to either identify a suitable off the shelf package that can be evaluated and tested or, if failing to find a suitable off the shelf package, develop a specification for a package that could fulfill the shipyards’ needs. The first phase developed a manual system to determine what the computer software would need to do. The second phase succeeded in finding a suitable off the shelf package that fulfilled the shipyard’s needs. The project report details the software selected and the case study work done on the software, including screen shots from Atlantic Marine’s project to assess solutions to the over-spray problems they have been facing.
