NCMS Project #: 141079
Problem: Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA – PMS-555) requires development of digital models for repair processes at the four Naval Shipyards in order to optimize those repair processes to shorten the submarine/CVN availability and reduce the labor effort required per availability.
Benefit: Development of this integrated modeling capability for the U.S. Navy public shipyards will establish a means for any industry suffering from aging infrastructure or antiquated processes to not only determine whether to invest in capital improvements but will generate the ability to prioritize and schedule those projects.
Solution/Approach: Phase II will build upon the accomplishments of Phase I, by creating the digital model of hundreds of thousands of repair processes at the component level in the proper sequence for the “As-Is” repair process of a nuclear aircraft carrier (CVN) at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard (PSNS). It will implement the best practices that the industry partners learned while gathering data for an SSN availability at Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard (PHNSY).
