Shipyard Industrial Analysis – Phase V

NCMS Project #: 141061

Problem: Private shipyards are currently seeking digital and modeling tools to provide data that in turn will reduce infrastructure costs and optimize planning methods to increase productivity, and efficiency.  This process is being used as part of the modernization effort at the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard & Intermediate Maintenance Facility (PHNSY & IMF) as part of Naval Sea Command (PMS-555).

Benefit: The lessons learned, and common solutions will be carried forward to the other three major naval shipyards.  The result can be used as a surrogate example that is extensible for use by commercial industrial shipyard organizations.

Solution/Approach: PMS-555 has added a requirement to produce a budget request documentation (DD1391) used to provide Congress the detail necessary to justify funding for a new Dry Dock (DD) capability based on the alternatives described, and the construction of a new Dry Dock Production Facility (DDPF).  Phase V will build on the previous phases of work with the compilation and formal completion of all the data, presented into the documents required for a Cost-Certified DD1391 of the new DD required to formalize the final budget-ready documentation.
