I would say workshop, but that is normally used for one off production. I can't find the word. It is on the tip of my tongue...Perhaps you could shed some light on it for us…?
I can see that there are multiple factors, here...I would say workshop, but that is normally used for one off production. I can't find the word. It is on the tip of my tongue...
Multiple production lines and systems in a single process flow to produce multiples of the same output...
Nope, can't put my finger on it.
What's in the Dutch barn is not really a production line. It's a baby panel line and some space for pin tables and sub-unit erection.A very well fitted out and equipped shed, with customised interior to a particular manufacture and supporting production lines aligned to it. So like a shed for making things. I'm sure there is a word for that...
Didn't BAE build one in Pompey. (Before it closed due to Sweaty politiking)What's in the Dutch barn is not really a production line. It's a baby panel line and some space for pin tables and sub-unit erection.
Shipyards rarely (if ever) resemble factories, not least because ship units are not built on a production line. What's in Rosyth is shiny and new - and don't get me wrong, the assembly shed is impressive and pretty much a first for the UK - but a factory it is not.
The giants of Geoje and Okpo - or Tsu or Bremerhaven for that matter - are not factories. They are very well laid out shipyards designed from the off for building ships efficiently. Something Rosyth - due to its constraints - is not.
The y built a very nice shed, with a gem of a panel line (allegedly now stored in a shed in Glasgow somewhere). But it was still constrained by the geometry of the dockyard (in particular III basin) and could never be described as a factory.
That will be interesting to see developThey've just applied for PP to extend the build sheds at Govan up to the roadside to the very same thing
