Inland Water Transport (IWT) is one of the reliable transport services for the
people in Myanmar. Six shipyards are in operation under control of Engineering
Department of Inland Water Transport. Among them, Dalla shipyard is the biggest one
of the IWT shipyards. This shipyard was established in 1852, Dalla Township,
Yangon Region. The shipyard currently accounts for about 50 percent of repair work
on ships owned by the Inland Water Transport (IWT). The shipyard is contributing
and providing maintenance services of the vessels for the regular runs and security of
passengers. The efficiency of the shipyard, which is about 164 years old, is hampered
by old equipment, including some from the WWII-era (Word War II).
Now the shipyard needs to be upgraded to improve its current capacity in ship
repair. In this study, we proposed two ways which are supporting facilities and relayout shipyard to increase ship repair. This research obtains two alternative layouts of
shipyard. The first alternative layout does not change the existing layout of shipyard
but steel plate warehouse are built. The second alternative changes a little the existing
layout because machine shop and steel plate warehouse is too far from the slipways.
The first and second alternatives renovate zone 5 shop, carpenter shop, pipe and boiler
shop and repair slipways. The two alternatives have steel plate warehouse as well as
the addition of two material handling equipment mobile crane and forklift.
The second alternative re-locates new machine shop near the slip ways for better
material handling and time consuming. The second alternative is the best alternative in
terms of economically feasible, good flow of material and perfect of technical term
and the most number of ship repairs. Then it can be improved capacity amount 1.43
times and docking time can be reduced from average 33 days to 27 days.
The shipyard should be applied detail above analyzed and changed to a private
organization, as the result of the government policy
