Pagination or Media Count:
This report documents a systematic ship design methodology for designing-in maintenance accessibility into the ships design. Recent ship design projects, which have emphasized maintenance accessibility to varying degrees in the ships design at the Naval Ship Engineering Center NAVSEC, were analyzed and Based on the analysis and a ship design methodology for maintenance accessibility was developed and documented. It is intended that this report be used as guidance and as a baseline from which lessons-learned can be continually fedback to improve the maintenance accessibility implementation on future ship acquisition programs. Guidance is provided on the maintenance accessebility responsibilities, schedule, and required tasks and funds for all phases of Ship System Design, i. e., Conceptual Design, Preliminary Design and Contract Design.
