Abstract

Decision matrix for the panel production line technological improvement policy definition N. Fafandjel, D. PavletiC & M. Hadjina Department of Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering Faculty of Engineering, University of Rijeka, Croatia Abstract Technological improvement in comparison to technological renewal, presents a greater project challenge, because it requires a more detailed approach in terms of defining input variables to meet user demands. In context of such improvement, denominated as refitting of the panel production line within, one of the major Croatian shipyards, the authors explored various methods to determine technological improvement policy. They used a functional breakdown concept for panel production line equipment components. Refitting includes the overall replacement of driving operations on the panel production line in general, that represents objects of technological improvement. To ensure a systematic approach to define improvement policy, and to consider all relevant
