Abstract:

Phase One implementation of Zone Technology at the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard PNSY began with the planning of the Service Life Extension Program SLEP of the USS Kitty Hawk CV-63 in 1986 with the assistance of Japanese engineers from Ishikawajima-Harima Heavy Industries Co., Ltd. IHI. Phase Two of Zone Technology implementation included the continuing work on the USS Kitty Hawk, extensive planning efforts for the USS Constellation CV-64 SLEP, and the execution of a number of smaller availabilities. Phase Three of Zone Technology consists of the completion of the USS Kitty Hawk SLEP, the final planning and commencement of the USS Constellation SLEP utilizing 100 Zone Technology, and the planning and execution of all future availabilities utilizing the concepts of Zone Technology. Significant lessons learned from prior availabilities, particularly the USS Kitty Hawk, have been identified and implemented on the USS Constellation SLEP. Results from smaller availabilities have been encouraging and are presented. Initial comparisons between the USS Kitty Hawk and the USS Constellation SLEP work performance in cost and schedule are reviewed.
