Fisher Maritime’s Contract Management for Ship Construction, Repair, & Design is a lessons-learned course geared to those involved in vessel construction, repair, and design. Instead of a theoretical course on contract management, the program is based upon the "scar tissue" from marine contractual disasters. The program is designed for 1) Project managers who handle day-to-day relations with.

GAO conducted a review of four naval shipyards to determine the effectiveness of Navy materiel management found that the naval shipyards do not effectively determine direct materiel requirements for future overhauls because: (1) complete and accurate usage data are not collected; and (2) historical usage information on prior overhauls is not analyzed.

OF THE NAVY THE NAVY CAN IMPROVE MATERIAL MANAGEMENT AT NAVAL SHIPYARDS - DIGEST - - - Material inventories at naval shipyards have increased sharply in recent years. Between andthe inventory value almost doubled, from $ million to $ million. Direct material inventories, valued. GAO reviewed the Navy's management of material costs in naval shipyards, focusing on: (1) whether the Navy's material requirements determination process minimizes waste caused by unused material; (2) shipyard compliance with Navy requirements prohibiting the accumulation of unrecorded material; and (3) the adequacy of controls used to manage materials, limit inventory Format: Paperback.

Although the Navy committed to increased capital investment and developed an improvement plan inthe shipyards' facilities and equipment remain in poor condition.

GAO's analysis of Navy shipyard facilities data found that their overall physical condition remains poor. Navy data show that the cost of backlogged restoration and maintenance projects at the shipyards has.

To meet the demands of building complex ships and submarines, private shipyards are redefining their operational processes and rethinking--because of decreased demand and increased competition--their business practices. This article discusses how the US Navy's Advanced Industrial Management (AIM) program is driving changes in the way that naval shipyards manage processes, organize operations.

Navy budgets are limited, both for new construction and Life-Cycle Management. As a result of the changing deployment roles and new security-related conditions, the requirements on naval vessels are increasing with regard to availability, reliability and readiness.

Technical processes on vessels continue to become more complex. Sept. 10 (UPI) --A Naval shipyard has a six-week pilot program to improve efficiency after the Navy testified late last year that there were maintenance backlogs Pudget Sound Naval.

The Navy's four public shipyards -- Norfolk Naval Shipyard (NNSY), Portsmouth Naval Shipyard (PNSY), Puget Sound Naval Shipyard and Intermediate Maintenance Facility (PSNS&IMF), and Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard and Intermediate Maintenance Facility (PHNSY&IMF) -- perform a vital role in national defense by executing maintenance on submarines and aircraft carriers in order to provide.

A shipyard is any full service naval shipyard or a civilian shipyard contracted for Navy work. The engineering department officers and enlisted supervisors have an interest in nearly all of the work a repair activity does on their ship.

You should be familiar with the procedures that will ensure the best job within the funds available. This article overviews the successful application of project management to the repair and modernization of Navy submarines.

The Advanced Industrial Management (AIM) Program is a reengineering of the business processes at eight U.S. Naval Shipyards that directly supports project management in planning, scheduling, work packaging and control, and the execution of work.

Similar to NSS-Aviation, the NSS-Shipyards has brought in outside business process experts to improve productivity and identify areas for long-term improvement at Norfolk Naval Shipyard.

The rising cost of U.S. Naval Ships and the rate of change in technology require a thorough analysis of current shipbuilding practices. The Navy wants the latest and The Navy can improve material management at naval shipyards book technology, while at the same time keeping overall cost low.

Navy can improve management of shipyard labor resources through better work measurement practices: report to the Secretary of the Navy. [United States. General Accounting Office.]. David Ehrenberg: The Navy Yard here in Brooklyn was established inthe same year the Philadelphia Navy Yard was established as one of the first original five naval.

There were 13 in total, four of which are still active. In addition, eight naval stations - one in the U.S., seven overseas - had some shipbuilding capability. At the end of WWII, the Navy terminated or cancelled almost all new ship construction contracts and only a few new ships were built in the Naval Shipyards.

For fiscal years throughthe Navy spent $ billion in capital investments to address shipyard performance, among other things, according to an August Government Accountability Office report. The report adds that in those years, 75 percent of planned maintenance periods for aircraft carriers and submarines were finished late.

“For example, the Navy estimates it will take 20 years to improve the infrastructure at its shipyards, 4 years to restore ship crew levels, and several years to improve maintenance planning.

The effort, dubbed Naval Sustainment System -- Shipyards, is based on the similarly named aviation program being implemented at the service's Fleet Readiness Centers. Navy Secretary Richard Spencer and Vice Adm. Dewolfe Miller, commander of naval air forces, have said the aviation program is focused on improving maintenance practices by.

Portsmouth Naval Shipyard's primary mission is the safe overhaul, repair and modernization of the U.S. Navy's nuclear-powered attack submarine fleet, specifically Los Angeles and Virginia-class submarines.

Portsmouth Naval Shipyard provides quality overhaul work in a safe, timely and affordable manner. The Navy’s efforts to boost planning, accelerate contract awards and move equipment sooner to shipyards have slashed the number of days ships are idled because of repair delays.

The ISO Quality Management System used by private naval shipyards establishes a 4-prong approach: 1) processes should be written; 2) the organization should follow the written processes; 3) audits should be conducted both internally and externally to validate the first two points; 4) audit results should be used to improve the processes.

The Shipyard Infrastructure Optimization Plan – a year, $billion plan pitched to lawmakers last year – would look at optimizing the layout of the four naval shipyards. Employees of employers performing shipyard activities on the shore, pier, terminal, yard, shipyard, machine shop, riverbank, etc., as well as on the vessels afloat or in drydocks or graving docks are covered by the Shipyard standards.

The. OSH Act of encourages states to develop and operate their own job safety and health plans. The United States Navy, like any organization, produces its own acronyms and abbreviations, which often come to have meaning beyond their bare States Navy personnel sometimes colloquially refer to these as other organizational colloquialisms, their use often creates or reinforces a sense of esprit and closeness within the organization.

The U.S. Navy currently owns and operates four public shipyards, which must be ready and able to support the fleet anytime and anywhere in the world at a moment's notice.

Between FYs andthe number of civilians employed at the shipyards increased 17 percent, while the direct man-days executed increased by just 7 percent. Intermediate Maintenance Facility, WA; and Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard and Intermediate Maintenance Facility, HI.

Function: maintain, modernize, repair, and dispose of Navy ships and related components. The shipyards are unique in that they are resourced by.

The Brooklyn Navy Yard was established in From the early s through the s, it was an active shipyard for the United States Navy, and was also known as the United States Naval Shipyard, Brooklyn and New York Naval Shipyard at various points in its history.

Two private shipyards build all U.S. nuclear-powered ships. These two shipyards, together with four public shipyards, provide the nation’s capability to overhaul, repair, refuel, and inactivate nuclear-powered ships. These complicated tasks require an experienced and skilled workforce specifically trained to do naval nuclear propulsion work.
