Abstract:

For over a decade, the use of zone logic, an operational approach consistent with modern manufacturing practices, has become more common in U.S. shipyards. Regarding naval ships, the most significant difference from traditional system-by-system orientation is the application of an implementation strategy even before basic design efforts begin for any combination of ship alterations ShipAlts. This imposes a unique challenge to each of the approximately thirteen planning yards which are charged by the Naval Sea Systems Command NavSea with assessing the costs of, and when authorized developing designs for, proposed ShipAlts. The challenge consists of grouping information during the various design stages in a way that makes planning yard design deliverables anticipate the needs of the implementing yards that will employ zone logic. Simultaneously, these deliverables must be suitable for use by eligible bidders who have not yet made the transformation to modern zone orientation. This paper provides guidance for planning yards. The need for them to act as production engineering surrogates until implementing yards are designated, is addressed. Typical planning yard outputs are also described.
