NSRP ASE Investment: $49K
The Common Parts Catalog (CPC) contains multi-shipyard catalog numbers with parts equivalency links within and across the CPC Participating Shipyards (Bath Iron Works, General Dynamics Electric Boat, and Northrop Grumman Ship Systems). The inclusion of surplus material identification into this standardized catalog, along with one set of agreed-to associated processes provides an added capability for these shipyards regarding material availability and construction schedule support. A monthly electronic update of a shipyard’s surplus material inventory into CPC provides a central inter-shipyard repository to support material availability and simultaneously provide potential use of this otherwise unused material.
