Outfitting electrical cable in highly sophisticated ships, such as, research vessels, patrol boats, etc., has significant impact on every aspect of ship construction, modernization, overhaul and repair. In other words, cost, schedule adherence and quality for very sophisticated ships are fully dependent on the performance of electrical work. Ishikawajime-Harima Heavy Industries, Co., Ltd. IHI has been exploiting zone logic, also recognized as - technology, for construction of virtually all ship types. But, the extensive cable footage in sophisticated ships requires special considerations and techniques, This paper presents practical design and production processes for zone outfitting electric cable. Special focus is on 1 functional end detail design, 2 conversion of system-oriented zone-oriented work packages and design date to called pallets, 3 work methods currently employed in IHI shipyards.
