The objective of this project is to develop capabilities to capture and maintain current in-service ship configuration with laser scan data overlay onto the Hull Planning Yard’s (HPY) 3D product model. Configuration deviations; between the current ship arrangements and the HPY’s 3D product model, will be analyzed and visually displayed in the 3D product model.
This project will provide current in-service Ford Class Aircraft Carriers and other Navy ship programs, a cost effective capability to configuration manage alignment between the In-Service Ship’s physical arrangement and it’s virtual 3D product model. This alignment is critical to the accurate planning and execution of maintenance & modernization activities. The Hull Planning Yard (HPY), the Navy, and on-board ship crewmembers through the ships In-Service 50 year lifecycle would use the proposed capabilities.
The success of an in-service digital environment is predicated on a continued synchronization methodology between the most current ship’s configuration and the 3D product model. The Ford Class is the first platform to have an In-Service Configuration Managed product model. Legacy processes and human behaviors that do not configuration manage unauthorized changes will have to be changed in order to maintain accurate ship configuration.
KEY DELIVERABLES / BENEFITS
The team estimates the following savings:
- 60% reduction in time to access ship information from an in-service environment
- 60% reduction in time to validate compartment components vs 2D drawings
- 50% reduction in time to collect data and develop maintenance plans
