In Touch with Industry: ICAF Industry Studies, Academic Year 1996: Shipbuilding   [open pdf - 888KB]

The shipbuilding industry is vital to the United States' s national security strategy. Recent cuts in Department of Defense procurement budgets have called into question the viability of an industry that has relied exclusively upon naval ship construction for the last two decades. If even a few U.S. shipyards are to remain in business, they must reenter the commercial shipbuilding market. To regain even a small percentage of that market, U.S. shipbuilding firms must learn to build ships competitively by streamlining their management structures, employing new rnanufaeturing processes, and revitalizing their labor force.
