The Cost of U.S. Navy Coatings QA/QC (2010-630)
- BAE Systems Southeast Shipyards
- Global Inspection Group
NSRP ASE Investment: $81K
This project investigated the process of QA by (1) modeling the overall QA process costs based on survey data on the costs of individual elements of the process, (2) improving our understanding of the present QA process by data-mining from the Navy Coatings Quality Assurance Tool Kit (CQATK) and (3) developing a value stream map for preservation of a critical coated surface in accordance with Navy Standard Item 009-32. A value stream mapping event held as part of this project resulted in identification of at least eight areas of opportunity to reduce cost and maintain quality.
