Requests for the accurate planning of the erection process using modelling and simulation techniques have recently increased in many engineering fields, including shipbuilding and the offshore industries. In this study, an efficient erection simulation framework is proposed based on three-dimensional (3-D) measurement data that can support the development of various simulation systems for modular construction planning in the offshore and shipbuilding industries. The proposed simulation framework can be used to predict the erection state to optimise any gap, weak point and/or overlap of the modular construction process on the basis of 3-D laser scanning measurement data. To evaluate the efficiency and applicability of the proposed simulation framework, the framework is applied to the drillship modular erection process. The results show that the proposed simulation framework provides a consistent, integrated developmental environment for an erection process in the offshore industries. In addition, it can be expected that the time costs and risks of on-site fatality associated with the erection process will be reduced.
