Modeling Variation Propagation Based on State Space and its Application to Dimensional Variation Prediction in Shipbuilding
Dimensional control is one of the most important challenges in shipbuilding industry. In order to predict assembly dimensional variation in block construction of shipbuilding, a variation stream model based on state space is presented in this paper, which can be further applied to accuracy control. Both locating error and welding deformation are taken into consideration in this model, and variation propagation mechanisms and accumulative rule in the assembly process are analyzed, then, a model is developed to describe the variation propagation throughout the assembly process, finally, an example of flat block construction is given to provide this method is effective and useful.
