Abstract: Currently, the simulation technology aimed at pre-verifying continues developing in the manufacturing industry, and the simulation on the production system in the manufacturing industry is applied most extensively. Many shipyards have steadily conducted studies on the improvement plans for logistics operations of shipyards in covering newly constructed ship products which consist of various ship types increasing in the fixed area of the yard. The block used to form a ship, the jig which supports the block, and the transporter are all physically related; therefore, the planning and scheduling and the operating scheme of distribution are related to shipyard logistics. In this paper, we will introduce a decision-making system that can perform logistics verification on the scheduling and layout changes using a block logistics simulation models which the product, the process, resources and schedule data of shipbuilding are reflected by being unified.

Keywords: ship block; logistics; material flow; modelling; simulation; shipyard; layout.
