Abstract

The evaluation of the effectiveness of modular outfitting of engine room machinery H. Yu and K. Ishida Kobe University of Mercantile Marine, Japan Abstract Modular outfitting plays an important role in shipbuilding to improve the effectiveness, save man-hours and have bigger competitive in the world. But the advantages above mentioned are benefit to shipbuilder for the most part. We don't know whether it has brought a convenience for crew to operate it or a benefit to owner. Now we want to use effectiveness to evaluate its' convenience to crew in this paper.

Traditionally, effectiveness' evaluation is carried out on a precise data. In many cases, however, there are some difficulties with application of traditional method to calculate it because lack of evidence or due to th
