HLAW Process Verification and Implementation for Ship Production

Project Participants: Huntington Ingalls Industries, Inc. Project Start: Dec 2016

Automated Part Detail Extraction

Project Participants: Huntington Ingalls Industries, Inc. Project Start: December 2016 Although the shipyard’s Engineering designs are digital, physical drawings are still a main end product delivered to downstream organizations. These drawings are often from a macro perspective such as a unit or assembly, however when individual parts require fabrication, they are drawn separately as details. These […]

Resource Availability

Project Participants: Huntington Ingalls Industries, Inc. Project Start: May 2016 Efficient utilization and allocation of resources for construction purposes is a common problem among all shipyards, but the problem is unique for each yard as each yard has dramatically different construction processes and build plans. One of the biggest cost drivers are lifts and moves […]

Enhanced Task Assignment and Progressing (eTAP) Project

Project Participants: Huntington Ingalls Industries, Inc. Project Start:  June 2016 Coordinating the daily tasks of ship construction for thousands of craftsmen is a challenging responsibility for the shipyard foreman. The amount of effort required to coordinate, scope, assign, and record the completion progress is extremely time-consuming and is currently performed in a manner alternating between […]

Induction Straightening for FORD Class Carrier Materials

Project Participants: Huntington Ingalls Industries, Inc., Newport News Shipbuilding & EWI Project Start:  June 2016 The U.S. Navy and Huntington Ingalls – Newport News Shipbuilding (NNS) have a joint initiative to reduce the construction cost of the FORD Class Carrier. The program addresses costs for contractor labor, shipbuilder materials, and government furnished equipment. The Navy […]

F-35 Assembly Metadata Integration

Project Participants: Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems Project Start: April 2016 The Northrop Grumman Integrated Assembly Line (IAL) in Palmdale, California, is a highly automated final assembly line with many automated systems assisting in the production of the F-35 center fuselage. Systems such as the Inlet Duct Robotic Drilling (IDRD) system, automate production functions such as drilling, metrology, […]

Optimized Lifting and Handling

Project Participants: Huntington Ingalls Industries, Inc. Project Start: March 2016 The lifting and handling processes, procedures and equipment currently utilized evolved to address the specific requirements of each step, without regard for the entire process as a whole. Controlling documentation for each organization is not coordinated, is inconsistently applied, does not clearly delineate roles and […]

Non-Contact Metrology In Shipbuilding

Project Participants: Huntington Ingalls Industries – Newport News Shipbuilding Project Start: February 2016 At Huntington Ingalls Industries – Newport News Shipbuilding (HII-NNS) optimization of the shipbuilding process is not only a focus, it is a requirement. If designing, constructing and providing worldwide fleet support for the Virginia Class Submarine (VCS) program was not enough of […]

Primer Thickness Measurement for Seam Validation & Supply Base Quality

Project Participants: Lockheed Martin Corporation Project Start: September 2015 Various fundamental elements contribute to the establishment of the F-35 as the single most advanced warfighter in aviation history. Several factors, such as an integrated airframe design and the incorporation of innovative materials, contribute to the effectiveness of the F-35. Every detail counts toward achieving the advanced […]

High Deposition Submerged Arc Welding Ford Class Aircraft Carriers

Project Participants: Newport News Shipbuilding Project Start: June 2015 The U.S. Navy and Newport News Shipbuilding (NNS), a division of Huntington Ingalls Industries, have a joint initiative to reduce the construction cost of FORD-class aircraft carriers (CVN). The Navy ManTech Program is participating in this initiative with specific focus on improving manufacturing processes for ship […]
