St. John Shipbuilding Orders SPAR Associates Production Planning/Cost Control Systems

SPAR Associates, Inc. of Annapolis, Md., announced the sale of a triad of shipyard production planning and cost/schedule control systems to Saint John Shipbuilding & Drydock Company in Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada.

The three systems have been implemented on a PRIME minicomputer and include WORK-PAC (labor), MAT-PAC (material) and PERT-PAC (job scheduling using critical path). Not only are the three systems fully linked to coordinate all shipyard production activities, but in addition they support government cost/schedule control reporting requirements. Saint John has been using two of the systems on a time-sharing basis since 1978.
