A REPORT TO THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE MARITIME ADMINISTRATION FOR PHASE 1 SHIP DESIGN AND PROGRAM STUDIES FOR A U.S. FLAG MERCHANT FLEET. VOLUME 3. PRELIMINARY SHIP DESIGN REPORT. BOOK 1. INTRODUCTION AND SUMMARY OF SYSTEM ENGINEERING STUDIES

The report summarizes the results of the system engineering studies performed for each of the four preliminary ship designs done under the Maritime Administration's CMX Standard Ship Design Project. Major system engineering studies were conducted in areas impacting on producibility and ship productivity. The systems studied were: hull structure; commonality of hull forms and structures; propulsion plants; cargo handling; propulsion efficiency; hull forms for reduced construction costs; modular construction; modular deckhouse; air conditioning, heating, and ventilation; navigation and communications; paint and deck coverings; automation and monitoring systems; manning reliability and maintainability procedures; standardization; hatches for general cargo ships; piping systems; functional arrangements; material quality; electrical power generation; convertibility of cargo holds; contaminated steam supply. The report also contains a summary of significant findings and recommendations of the system engineering studies. (Author)
