Integrated Hull Construction, Outfitting, and Painting (NSRP 0169)

IHOP1-02a

IHOP1-02a.JPG: An extensively outfitted and painted block, shown before turnover, manifests integrated hull construction, outfitting and painting (IHOP). Opportunity for down-hand work on ceilings and access for extensive amounts of outfitting and painting work in accordance with the principles of group technology, enhance productivity.

IHOP3-03a.JPG: Typical Process Flow for Flat-block Assembly. The arrows (in preceding figure, NSRP 0169 p. 20) indicate inputs for parts, sub-blocks, and stage plans. For inner-bottom blocks, stages would be added after position 8 for: outfitting, fitting bottom shell, turnover and welding bottom shell. As shown in the photographs, flat-block assembly is productively implemented with real work flow, i.e., with blocks being shifted from stage to stage. (See also IHOP3-03b.)

IHOP3-04a.JPG: Typical Process Flow for Curved-block Assembly. The arrows (in preceding figure, NSRP 0169 p. 21) indicate inputs of parts, sub-blocks and stage plans. All work stages for assembling each block are implemented in succession on the same pin-jig site. The specialized work teams shift from site to site. This technique is called virtual work flow because the impact on the workers is the same as if developing blocks were on a conveyor and moving past fixed work stations. (See also IHOP3-04b.)
