Leapfrog Technology to Standardize Equipment and System Installations
NATIONAL STEEL AND SHIPBUILDING CO SAN DIEGO CA
Pagination or Media Count:
Leapfrog Technology is defined within this project as a holistic, cost effective approach to combining and applying innovative yet simple products and processes concurrently throughout various departments including engineering, fabrication shops, and production stages of construction. The present technology for designing, manufacturing, and installing equipment foundations and systems is labor intensive and is often on the critical path of ship construction. The lowest total installed costs will be achieved through the streamlining or elimination of these labor-intensive tasks. This project will give the tools, products and approach necessary to minimize the completely installed costs for foundations and hangering systems in the form of a manual including ten deliverables, a complete set of standards for foundations and hangers, a scantling selection computer program using Microsoft Excel, and this final report.
