“Managing supply chain disruptions became essential to mitigating production delays because of the pandemic. The biggest drivers of schedule and cost impact have been increased rates of absenteeism—sometimes as high as 30% at some [SCA] member yards—unexpected loss of supervision and delayed equipment deliveries due to supply chain challenges.”-Ben Bordelon, Bollinger Shipyards LLC and CEO of Shipbuilders Council of America (SCA).
The news isn't all bad...

Austal USA earned the Shipbuilders Council of America (SCA) 2020 Excellence in Safety award the organization recently announced.
