The team envisions to be the cost reduction partner of shipbuilding industry. It provides optimized steel material order and accurate data for the Numerical Control Machines.
There are two functional sub-teams that offer value for hull production and steel processing, namely:
Nesting Team provides the Numerical Control Cutting/Marking data of plates and steel sections (e.g. Angle bar, Flat bar, and Bulb piece) to the
factory. These data are then fed into the NC machine to cut steel materials into the desired size and shape of each hull structural member.
Along with the NC data, the team also provides NC operation plan which serves as a guide for the workers as they go on with the cutting process. To ensure correctness and accuracy, cutting simulation is performed before sending the NC Data to the factory.
Cutting Plan Team prepares Steel Material Order list for procurement of necessary materials from the steel manufacturing companies. The function aims to improve steel material yield ratio, and to minimize the scrap so that material cost will be reduced.
