The NSRP manages and focuses national shipbuilding and ship repair research and development funding on technologies and processes that will reduce the total ownership cost of ships for the U.S. Navy, other national security customers and the commercial sector and develop and leverage best commercial and naval practices to improve the efficiency of the U.S. shipbuilding and ship repair Industry. NSRP provides a collaborative framework to improve shipbuilding-related technical and business processes.
With the title: ‘’Automated Detail Planning and Instant Earned Value Control’’, this project aims to automate the detail planning process coordinated with the project plan through a direct integration with engineering data.
This project offers the participating shipyards the ability to experience the enhanced capabilities of integrating engineering, planning and production control to increase not only their level of project control but also the efficiency of their operational performance by up to 15%.
It allows for automated sequencing, budgeting, scheduling, resource allocation and Earned Value Management System (EVMS). Integrating a 3D engineering design model allows metadata at the part level to drive the automated planning algorithm to support planning, shop floor control, EVMS, and ERP systems.
