Abstract:

The use of product oriented work break down structure is widely accepted as the most efficient ship building strategy for new construction. Much literature has also been published on applying these concepts to overhaul strategies. The intent of this paper is to describe the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard process in applying the concepts of product oriented work break down structure to the overhaul of Naval ships. The specific process described in this paper will be the development of Integrated Design Packages IDPs. An IDP is the link that will provide an integrated design instruction that incorporates engineering, manufacturing, and producibility attributes into the design product at PNSY. This paper will provide a history of IDP development, describe its uses and also predict future uses. I will try to impress upon the reader the flexibility of the approach by relaying the many different applications of the IDP to date. Photogrammetry will also be addressed as a means of gathering large amounts of shipcheck data needed to develop the IDP. Also to keep things in perspective IDPs are one part of the overall Zone Technology concept that has been implemented.
