CONCLUSIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS 4 Executive Summary During July, 1995. the Uni~enity of Gchgan Transportation Research Institute. Manne Systems Division. conducted an extensive literature search to i d e n e and evaluate software currently commercially available that would support space analysis for outfit h i t design and planning. The long term objective is to ident* and evaluate specific software packages or combinations of packages that can be employed in the development of build strategies and the early stage design of sfupboard spaces, particularly machnery spaces. The entire University of Michigan library system was searched for pertinent literature about shipbuilding and other industrie
