The Evolution of Generating of Methods and Standards in U.S. Naval Shipyards( )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Production Industrial Engineering Resource System (PIERS) is an automated system for improving industrial engineering. One of its components is Computer Aided Time Standards (CATS), a computer-assisted method to find, manipulate, and store standard time data and existing standards to create new standards. CATS provides immediate, user-friendly access to the more than 18,000 elements of standard time data and standards published by all shipyards. The system evolved from the Department of Defense (DoD) Computer Aided Time Standards program to collect, validate, and publish standard time data in a single source for use by all DoD work measurement organizations. CATS uses menus, prompts, and instructions displayed on the screen to first direct the user to appropriate standard time data or standards and then to lead the user through the process of constructing a new standard. Because CATS performs the required mathematical computations, many hours of tedious manual labor have been replaced with a few keystrokes. One of the keys to CATS' flexibility and usefulness is its modular design. The system now includes many time-saving software packages, and additional packages can be made part of the system quickly and inexpensively. CATS has demonstrated a cost savings and positive return on investment of 3.5:1. With strong management support, the use of computer systems similar to PIERS can significantly improve the bottom lines of other organizations
The National Shipbuilding Research Program, 1990 Ship Production Symposium, Paper No. 1A-2: Manufacturing Lead Time -- A Factor to Consider During Planning and Acquisition of Navy Ships( )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

NAVSEA Shipbuilding Support Office, Philadelphia, PA provides current Manufacturing Lead Time information to Navy planners, designers and acquisition managers responsible for the timely procurement of the latest design Navy ships. Lead time information is critical to effective budgeting and on-time delivery of basic material, hull mechanical and Electrical Components and Combat Systems. This paper will address the methodology for solicitation, statistical consolidation and final assessment of information provided by over 1300 domestic primary and secondary manufactures. Early detection of lead time change provides a basis for remedial action whereby critical paths may be selected, schedules altered, or substitutions provided. The paper will further address the status of the United States Industrial Base capacity to provide these materials, components and systems and compares the current industrial base with its status five and ten years ago. Loss of domestic capacity has resulted in sole or single source procurement and in some cases sole dependence upon a foreign source for critical subcomponents. The ability of United States manufacturers respond to peacetime programs and potential surge or mobilization requirements will also be examined

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arresting gear engines are large heavy pieces of machinery which are costly to replace because of expensive repairs and modifications to existing decks. These costs can be avoided and the units installed in a more timely efficient manner if the photogrammetric process is used. This article outlines the methods and techniques for using photogrammetry as a planning tool. It also demonstrates the practicality of collecting dimensional data from existing ship structures and foundations and using this data directly in the manufacturing phase of the equipment
Strategizing and Executing the Implementation and Utilization of Zone Technology at Philadelphia Naval Shipyard( )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Zone Logic Technology (ZLT) is an accepted practice in Japanese shipyards. This process, originally conceived in the United States, was considerably refined by the Japanese Shipbuilding and Repair Industry and since 1978 has been re-imported to the United States. ZLT replaces the traditional system-by-system approach to work with a zone-oriented product work breakdown structure. This grouping of jobs, if executed properly, has the potential to significantly enhance efficiency and productivity. Numerous articles published by the National Shipbuilding Research Program (NSRP) and the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers (SNAME) have explained in detail how time-honored shipbuilding methods are slowly being replaced by the more efficient and analytical procedures of ZLT. These procedures dictate that work be planned and executed under a priority scheme: (1) Divide work into geographical zones, carefully considering the nature of the problems that are involved; (2) Develop a zone-oriented product and interim product work breakdown structure; (3) Properly sequence the work to be accomplished by stage and area; and (4) Plan final systems tests as necessary. To date, the application of ZLT in new ship construction is commonplace. But its use in the ship repair, overhaul, and conversion environment has been relatively small in scope and application in both private and public shipyards. One exception is the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard (PNSY), which implemented ZLT in the fall of 1986, targeting the Service Life Extension Program (SLEP) for the USS KITTY HAWK (CV-63) for its initial application. The technology has helped PNSY overshadow the productivity of all other U.S. shipyards' combined. This paper will discuss the implementation and development of Zone Logic Technology at PNSY and what is in store for the future
The National Shipbuilding Research Program. 1991 Ship Producton Symposium Proceedings: Paper No. IXB-1, The Eight-Hour Workday: An Unattainable Goal( )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

No industrial operator can be fully productive for an entire shift. Interference with the productive process occurs during the work day that is beyond the operator's control. Once the industrial engineering analyst has produced a normal time for an operation, the standard is still not complete. The analyst must account for personal, fatigue, and delay (PF & D) time and factor the appropriate allowances into the normal time to produce a true standard time. Allowing for personal needs is usually not enough. Operators experience fatigue due to the stress factors that are abundant in ship repair processes. Delays are incurred when multiple trades must combine their skills to complete one work cycle. These personal, fatigue, and delay factors are steadily increasing, as technological, safety, and environmental needs are discovered, making many processes more complicated. Some other factors that affect the work day are: mustering of personnel for shift changes: preparing turn-over reports for ensuing shifts; attending to administrative requirements; and general work area cleaning
Photogrammetry - Automating the Collection of Shipcheck Data (The National Shipbuilding Research Program)( )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The installation of new or modified systems on board U.S. Naval combatants during overhauls requires advance planning ship checks. One primary purpose of a ship check is to document existing shipboard conditions in order to develop engineering drawings for the installation of these new systems. Gathering and documenting existing shipboard conditions has always been a very labor intensive effort. Also, accuracy of measurements is restricted by congested spaces, dimensions of extensive length, and intricate configurations of systems. Furthermore, the accuracy of the ship check information relates directly to the quality of the production installation. Accurate well-planned ship check information will reduce production interferences, production costs and schedule variance. One objective of a planning department is to reduce man day expenditures required to accomplish a ship check while increasing the accuracy of the data gathered. Automating this ship check using photogrammetry, specifically stereo photogrammetry, can provide a means to achieve these objectives. This paper will explore the use of stereo photogrammetry to gather ship check data for shipboard distributive systems such as piping, ventilation, cable ways, compartment arrangements and structural components
Photogrammetry and Multi-Headed Theodolite Systems as Complementary Tools( )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Foundations for wet accumulator bottles (WABs) are large, complex structures that require fabrication in accordance with exacting dimensional tolerances. WABs are those tanks that store steam for the launching of aircraft off aircraft carriers. The traditional process for fabrication and installation of WAB foundations is a high risk venture not only from cost and scheduling perspectives, but also from a geometrical perspective. The WAB foundations consist of two units, each with four structural members and two padeyes that require fabrication and installation with respect to an imaginary WAB centerline. Through the complimentary use of photogrammetry and a multi-headed electronic theodolite system, the foundations can be fabricated in the shop to the correct shipboard geometry, and installed within tolerances, and within cost and schedule. With all of the fabrication completed in the controlled environment of the shop, all structural, fabrication, and installation problems can be alleviated before the actual shipboard installation. This paper explains the methods and techniques for using photogrammetry and a multi-headed electronic theodolite system as complimentary tools. It explains the practicality of collecting dimensional data from the existing ship structure using photogrammetry, and using a multi-headed electronic theodolite system to assist in the fabrication of the WAB foundations
The National Shipbuilding Research Program. 1988 Ship Production Symposium, Paper No. 2B: An Integrated CAD/CAM Network for Work Packaging Development and Database Management( )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Zone Logic Technology CAD/CAM and networked Database Management System is an integrated system of commercially available, off-the-shelf computer hardware and software products. These products have been carefully selected, tailored, and integrated to specifically satisfy and support the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard (PNSY) Zone Technology Program in support of work packaging development, computer aided graphics and an on line, real-time, distributive database management system. The process used publishing this paper serves as a small example of some of the capabilities of the system at PNSY. The entire document, including graphics, was generated on the system. Scanners, CAD and PC systems were utilized to input, develop and convert the graphics files into appropriate formats for import into a technical publications software package. LAN interconnection capabilities provided option developing portions of this document on different systems and at different locations with the ability IO access the appropriate files remotely. Philadelphia Naval Shipyard has thrust itself into the 21st century in both new management and automated technologies. Senior managers arc making bold business decisions necessary to the shipyard shipyard's survival. A pilot project has been initiated to develop and execute a transition phase to improve shipyard productivity. Major changes to management, workpackaging, production, planning, and design execution are currently ongoing Computer assistance has been developed and is being coupled with these changes, thus forming a Zone Logic Technology (ZLT) Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAD/CAM) and networked Data Base Management System (DBMS)
The National Shipbuilding Research Program. 1989 Ship Production Symposium, Paper No. 7: The Evolution of Generating of Methods and Standards in U.S. Naval Shipyards( )

Integrated Design Packages: The Link Between Manufacturing and Design( )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 (IDP's). 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 IDP's are one part of the overall Zone Technology concept that has been implemented
Improving Overhaul Planning Through Risk Assessment and Risk Management( )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Risk affects both the shipyard and ship's force because the completion of the overhaul could be affected by late authorized work resulting in the ship not being able to meet her commitments. As Philadelphia Naval Shipyard (PNSY) is an industry leader in zone or Group Technology execution methods, it is particularly disruptive to work flow to return to geographic areas and perform work in an area out of phase or even worse-in an area where similar work is already complete. In the past the tools that were most often employed to build an effective work package, yet still remain within the budget, were personal experience, historical data and trends, and the necessary deletions of less critical work in favor of accomplishing essential repairs. The shipyard's success at making these determinations was held hostage by purely subjective opinions of the particular group of advance planners that attended the Work Definition Conference (WDC) and executed most of the advanced planning, without consideration of established overhaul objectives. With the innovation of Zone Technology, it was clear that a consistent and effective risk assessment method must be developed to determine the probability of equipment failure during the testing phase of the overhaul and the impact on cost and schedule to the overhaul. The USS KIDD (DD-963) scheduled availability in 1989 proved to be the ideal opportunity to develop and execute a formal risk assessment and management program. The USS CONSTELLATION (CV-64) SLEP availability in 1990 afforded the opportunity to refine and expand the risk assessment methodology
The National Shipbuilding Research Program, 1990 Ship Production Symposium, Paper No. 2B-2: Financial Questions -- Industrial Engineering Answers( )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In quest of increased efficiency to make better use of financial resources, industry, both public and private sector, have often been turning to the industrial engineering community for help. And while there has been progress in measuring the efficiency of human resources and establishing work standards, similar efforts in the use of equipment have, in recent years, become of greater interest and will continue to do so in the coming years
Integration of Measurements and Maneuvering Technologies Used to Modify Caisson( )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The modification of the caisson drydock is in many ways more difficult than conventional ship modifications. This is because of the accuracy required, the location of the measurements, and the size of the structure. The development of computer-based multi-headed electronic theodolite systems made it possible to extract accurate data on large structures. This data was formatted so it could be input directly into a computer-aided design system. The multi-headed electronic theodolite system was used to transfer new design information directly to the structure. The caisson structure was modified and moved safely into position with the aid of a water castor system for final assembly. Final dimension checks verified the accuracy of the system
Corporate Repair Philosophy and Measuring for Continuous Improvement at Philadelphia Naval Shipyard( )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Initial zone technology implementation at the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard (PNSY) in 1986 set the stage for one of the most significant shifts in culture and repair philosophy ever witnessed at a public naval shipyard. Attempting to fundamentally change the way that the shipyard conducted business forced senior and middle management to completely understand the dynamic and interrelated processes that were utilized to perform depot level work. Through the Philadelphia Quality Process (PQP), this understanding was achieved and changes that were necessary to shift from a Ship Work Breakdown Structure (SWBS) to a Product Work Breakdown Structure (PWBS) began. As all quality processes will point out, measurement is the key to obtaining the necessary data to make corporate decisions. As the zone technology model was refined from 1987 through 1991, the understanding of "how we do work" continued to improve. Attacking processes that are sluggish, manual and not responsive enough to support the manufacturing process is the direct result of meaningful measurement focusing management attention. The purpose of this paper is to point out that the emphasis of the shipyard is now on the total "manufacturing process" rather than just "odds and ends" of planning and production
The National Shipbuilding Research Program, 1990 Ship Production Symposium, Paper No. 4B-2: Hazardous Waste Minimization Program at Philadelphia Naval Shipyard( )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) set forth the goal to reduce hazardous waste generation by 50% by 1992. This has provided Naval installations such as Philadelphia Naval Shipyard (PNSY) with an increasingly defined role as active participants in the nationwide effort to reduce or eliminate the generation of hazardous waste. PNSY Industrial Engineering Division has developed a comprehensive plan targeted at managing and reducing hazardous waste generation in the shipyard. The first goal of the plan was to analyze and identify all the potential hazardous waste streams generated within the shipyard. A directory of all the shipyard waste streams was compiled indicating the type of wastes generated and the processes from which they originated. Upon completion of this identification, a Pareto Analysis was performed to rank the waste streams in consideration of quantity generated, cost of disposal and toxicity. The high ranking waste streams were targeted for immediate remedial action. This ensured success in meeting and exceeding the CNO goal and achieving maximum payback on engineering manhours dedicated to the program. These waste streams and the industrial processes which generated them were carefully analyzed. The feasibility of eliminating/recycling them through a process change or on-site treatment to effectively reduce their volume was studied. The Industrial Engineering Division has since initiated a variety of projects including treatment/ recycling/elimination of hazardous waste in addition to critical process changes which reduce volume generation. achieve the CNO goal, ensure compliance to federal, state and local regulations and produce a cost savings/avoidance for the shipyard in excess of 1 million dollars within the first two years of implementation
