Summary 

Plate bending is one of the major processes in shipbuilding. The plates which are cut in specific dimensions are sent to plate bending work shop and they are curved by using various methods. These curved plates constitute bilge turn plates of a vessel which are curvilinear. In this study, plate bending work shop was considered and its simulation model was created by using SIMIO software. The aim of the study is to see the effects of some alterations on available situation of plate bending work shop and present some recommendations in order for the plate bending work shop to operate effectively. In this work, there are number of four alterations including the changing of bending processing time, number of cranes and bending machine. At the end of the study, the values of the most suitable crane number, bending machine number, and the bending operation processing time were recommended. It is believed that the plate bending work shop will operate in effective way if the shipyard administration implement the recommendations presented in this study.
