SD-8 Summary of Activities SD-8 Naval Ships Panel 11 January 2013
2 What Direction Should SD-8 Panel Take?
Mission Statement of the Joint SNAME-ASNE Ship Design Committee ship design in the development and construction The mission of the Ship Design Committee is to advance the art, science and practice of ship design in the development and construction of naval ships, commercial ships and advanced ships and craft, and the multi- disciplines allied thereto.
Naval Ships Panel, SD-8 Advance development of a more effective standard Naval Ship Design process from requirements determination through delivery of the lead ship Foster continuous improvements through more investment in and implementation of ship design and engineering technologies Provide a forum to discuss community issues and challenges in order to develop a shared perspective between Government - Industry - Academia Offer a forum for the transfer of "best practices" and "lessons learned" between generations of naval ship designers Encourage networking amongst Government - Industry - Academia ship design engineers and other stakeholders in the Naval Ship development process Promote technical papers and other forms of knowledge exchange on Naval Ship Design
SD-8 Kickoff Meeting Under Leadership of Fidel Sanchez 15 Apr 2009
SD-8 Workshop (Top Six) 6 3. Other DDG-51 Flight Upgrade Study Basic Research Propulsion and Electrical Systems Way Ahead 2. Total Ownership Cost Reductions Maintenance/Modernization/Cleanliness Role and gaps in requirements Role of objective architecture in ship design Ship Arrangements Manning and crew automation Everyone has a role: What key decisions need to be made at all levels? Control and development of physical models – how and why the systems actually dynamically work together Service Life Allowance, e.g., Pricing Future Options 1.Navy as Systems Integrator Integration: What does it mean? Identify key activities/roles/processes Identify role of primes/subcontractors and contracting vehicles Identify organization of CPTs Identify roadblocks to communications Identify ways to bridge the gap between ship/mission system designers and fleet expectations Ship specs and design criteria Mr. Potato Head Ship Control of interfaces Allocation of KPPs DDG-1000 lessons learned 4.Cost Estimating and Modeling Moving away from weight-based estimating Software 5. Issues Impacting the Fleet Equipment variability and training impacts Mission System Complexity Improving weight estimating and control 6. Continuing Ed & Professional Dev of Ship Design Engineers Combat System/HM&E/Manning/Training/Logistics training across platforms – Subs/Carriers/Oilers Leverage Ship Design Process Models to develop design concepts CLASSRON tours Use case development with fleet participation Requirements Development and Flow to 3 digit SWBS – Is NVR sufficient? Manning Concept Development Modeling and integration with ship design models 7. Ship Design Tools Investment Plan Improving weight estimating and control Architectural tools such as Ship Arrangements LEAPS early stage design product model Integrated Structural Design Environment Systems Engineering tools for uncertainty, complexity, risk, costing, etc. Identify needs and establish priorities
Issues for Consideration How can we achieve cross-industry representation on this panel? How can we collaborate with other SNAME and ASNE panels? How can we support the development of future ship designers? What gap’s exist in ship design knowledge library that we can help close? How to sustain naval ship design capability, with limited new designs? How can we reduce the so-called “customer factor”?
Reducing Total Ownership Costs by Improving the Naval Ship Design Process Technical seminar/workshop on March 26, 2010, at the U.S. Naval Academy A key output from this workshop was a draft paper summarizing our findings and recommendations to NAVSEA 05 and OPNAV N86 Paper published in ASNE Naval Engineers Journal
9 Summary Ship design community needs to be better aware of fleet technical and logistics issues Emphasize Maintenance & Modernization Needs in Early Stage Design & Carry the Emphasis Along to Later Design Phases The waterfront including the shipyards feel strongly that the ship design and construction ignores too many areas that adversely impact schedules, costs and the ability to care for and modernize our navy surface ships. We can do better.
10 What’s SD-8 Doing Next? Follow up SD-8 Workshop at Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (Laurel, MD) in March 2011 Continue to explore the issue of life-cycle cost reductions Begin to explore the question, “What are some ways we can develop surface combatant engineers when we are doing relatively little surface combatant design and engineering?” Opportunity to hear about DDG-51 Flight III Upgrade Study Update to SD-8 Report on Life-Cycle Costs Interested?

SD-8 Navy Ships, SD-4 Arrangements & SD-10 Hull Form Design Panels Seminar/Workshop, March 30-31, 2011 At Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory in Laurel, MD Working Group One - Reducing Total Ownership Costs (TOC): Led by RADM Bill Wyatt (Ret). Working Group Two -“Ship as a “Truck”: Led by Dr. Norbert Doerry, Technical Director, Technology Group, NAVSEA Working Group Three - Contract/Detail Design: Led by Jason Thomas, Alion Science and Technology; explore improvements for conveying design across contractual boundary and discuss flexibility left for shipbuilder during Detail Design.
Workshops on Real Options & Application to Naval Force Structure Planning and Ship Design, Oct & Dec 2011 Setting the stage for real options theory in ship design and naval force structure planning by Dr. Norbert Doerry, NAVSEA 05T Introduction to Real Options Theory by LT Jon Page, USN, PEO Ships Introduction to DSTO and Operations Research/Navy Force Structure efforts by Dr. Kurt Brinschwitz, Defense Science and Technology Organization (DSTO), Maritime Operations Division, Australia SERC (Systems Engineering Research Center) efforts in Real Options Theory, Stevens Institute of Technology
Evaluating Rapid Ship Design Environment (RSDE) Toolset for Future Frigate Conceptual Design Studies, Study Guide for, 2012 RSDE is an automated high-end toolset that integrates design definition tools with physics-based analysis tools, and uses an enlarged “design space” to account for uncertainty, both in the design and in the requirements. RSDE improves early stage design through visualization of the trade space and generation of many feasible ship design concepts. RSDE allows user to analyze the space of designs for a large number of disciplines at a higher level of fidelity, with results forming behavior objects for multi-disciplinary synthesis, and visualize the design space. This capability leads to an optimized and balanced concept design in a much shorter period of time.

WHERE WE NEED TO GO According to an old proverb, if we do not change our direction, we might end up where we are headed.
