Standardization of hull, mechanical and electrical H,M E components in U.S. Naval ships can take the form of identical components on one ship, on one class of ships, or on the entire Navy fleet. The Navy has shown through a variety of successes that it has the potential to do even more challenging tasks in this area. This paper describes the data base and tools used by the Navy and some of the Navys successes. A vision and course of action for the future are discussed that might include commercial as well as naval ships.
