Puget Sound Naval Shipyard Modernization

NCMS Project #: 141071

Problem: Naval Sea Systems Command (PMS-555) requires the industry partners to develop digital models of 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 to not only determine whether to invest in capital improvements but will generate the ability to prioritize and schedule those projects.

Solution/Approach: The effort of this project will be to create the digital model for the “As-is” repair process of a nuclear aircraft carrier (CVN) at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard (PSNS), implementing the Industry Partner’s best practices.  The goal of this effort being to create a digital model at PSNS that could determine and validate future infrastructure expenditures at PSNS against key performance indicators.
