Context and Overview:
As part of Vision 2030, key targets have been defined to promote domestic ship building, repair and recycling India needs to channelize domestic demand for ship building and ship repair. Also, how ship repair clusters need to be developed for enhancing repair capacity in India.
IMRC attempts to explore the current situation of repairs and shipbuilding in India. And how with Additive manufacturing the scope of services can be enhanced and made more sustainable. Additive manufacturing presents a transformative approach to industrial production that enables the creation of lighter, stronger parts and systems. It allows a lean and agile supply chain. Two types of spare parts - just-in-time and just-in-case can be manufactured and managed using digital inventory solutions.
