Expected SimYard savings


As part of the Navy's ongoing evaluation of ARGOS, OTS developed SimYard, a shipyard simulation system. SimYard allows schedule performance to be simulated under the uncertainties and inefficiencies experienced in real yards. SimYard was evaluated by independent stochastic simulation experts, who pronounced its methodology both sound and highly innovative. The simulator has been instrumental in demonstrating that the schedule savings projected by ARGOS are likely to be realized by any shipyard that deploys the technology despite the vagaries of shipyard operations. As part of the ARGOS Optimization Suite, SimYard is used as a shipyard evaluation tool to augment the functionality provided by ARGOS, providing further insight into shipyard operations and productivity.
