It is known to us all that in factors of determining shipbuilding cycle, ship assembly occupies an important position in shipbuilding. In traditional shipbuilding model, front-line workers conduct assembly according to the two-dimensional drawing of marine designer. They will make mistakes inattentively, which results in the waste of manpower and material resources. At the same time, the abstraction of drawing will tend to generate deviation in the communication system between designer and ship-owner because of no concrete model object. This paper adopted a kind of technology that could use three-dimensional entity form to express ship model and assembling process-ship virtual assembly technology. The combination of virtual reality technology and ship assembly technology revealed the insufficient and defect in design, which avoided the waste of manpower and material resources during practical assembly. Through the selection and comparison of virtual assembly, we could optimize assembly technology, thus to convenient for the learning and execution of front-liner workers, enhance shipbuilding efficiency and shorten shipbuilding cycle.
