2 SWFTS VSA Team Leads: Brian Toth, Scott Turk and Don Altizer Lean Team: Marcus Burrell / Lynn Hansen / Jill WinkelmanBoundaries: Input - SE&I and I&T TestingOutput – AIT Installation Completion MessageScope: The processes being evaluated are defining SOVT and SoS Level Post-Installation Testing requirements across Backfit (SSN 21, SSN 688/I and SSGN 726 Class) and VIRGINIA (SSN 774 Class) submarines. The process involves PEO-SUB, PMS392, PMS394, PMS401, PMS425, PMS435, IWS-2, NSWC – Port Hueneme, NUWC (KPT and NPT), SEA07W, SUBMEPP, NAVSUBFOR, SPAWAR and Lockheed- Martin.Current state: USS Virginia (SSN 774) and USS Asheville (SSN 758)Future State:SE: APB-09 ProductionI&T and Install: TI-08 for USS Boise (SSN 764) and USS North Carolina (SSN 777)
3 SWFTS VSA Ground RulesBe open minded with Best of the Best Post Installation Test Processes:What’s best for Fleet and PARMSGain efficienciesReduction of total installation time requirements (Ao).Does not imply responsibility or personnel changesConstructive criticism welcomeNon-attributional discussionsDon’t make it personalRespect the Opinions of othersSWFTS is a Team Sport – Be one Team!
4 Post Installation Test Problem Statement Currently there are two (2) Post-Installation Testing processes that exist within Team SubmarineBackfit (SSN 21, SSN 688/I and SSGN 726 Class) which is comprised of several different test programs and activities/organizationsVIRGINIA (SSN 774 Class) In-Service Fleet Modernization efforts.Differences exist in regard to Testing Specifications between the two (2) processes.It is sensible to eliminate any SOVT and SoS Level Post-Installation Testing process differences and establish and utilize common testing specifications in order to achieve maximum commonality, a more streamlined Post-Installation Testing process and to cost-effectively provide the greatest war fighting capability to the Fleet.
5 Test Onboard like in the Lab SWFTS VSA CharterDevelop commonality across all subsystem testingFocus on Subsystem Operational Verification Testing (SOVT) and System of Systems (SoS) Level testing guidance and requirements.Develop a process to ensure a good hand-off from I&TFull understanding of SoS lab testingLeverage as much as possible from I&T (lab results, test procedures, process, etc.). Document what hasn't and needs to be pushed to the platform.No or minimum repeat/duplication of testing onboardLeverage off I&T test proceduresTest Onboard like in the Lab
6 SWFTS VSA CharterStreamline Post-Installation Testing process to support ship Modernizations and reduce AoIncorporate SCS Cap testing to better identify and validate mission scenarios earlier.Participants: PMS450, PMS425, PMS435, PMS401, PMW770, PMS392, IWS-2, IWS-6, MARMC, NUWC NPT, NUWC KPT, SPAWAR, SUBMEP, Lockheed Martin and Electric Boat.
