AbstractWe propose to develop a new paradigm for ship manufacture that is based on reengineering the processes to take advantage of pervasive computing, ubiquitous pull and push of information and optimal delivery of information to every user, work crew, orprocess. The focus of the effort is not just to wireless enable manufacturing processes, but to completely re-engineer the processes in which the workload is optimized to take advantage of the flexibility and connectivity of PDA, Tablet PC, and wirelesstechnology. Because of longer horizons for information collection currently there is a perpetual gap between the status of the manufacture facilities and the state represented in information systems. Operators often view plans as some idealized states,which are difficult if not impossible to achieve in reality. The proposed
