COST EFFECTIVENESS THROUGH PRODUCIBILITY DESIGN CONTROL

Design Control as applied in Detail Design is a systematic effort by a team of design engineers to concurrently arrange systems, equipment, outfit, structure accesses, and partitions within a control area; to produce an optimum arrangement of the area involved; to assure cost-effctive integration of systems; to minimize physical interference; and to reduce installation costs. Satisfactory application of this technique insures detection and correction of most interferences early in the detail design stage before they impact production costs. This process, known as "Producibility Design Control," has been used for the first time by NAVSEC in the Contract Design of the DDG-47. It has been applied to certain selected spaces which exhibited a potentially high density of equipment, distributive systems, high heat dissipation, and RF transmission lines constraints. It is anticipated that furnishing prospective shipyards with the Navy's Contract Design for coordination of selected areas will result in an interference-free, feasible, and producible design, and will reduce shipyard detail design man-hours.
