Research Institution
The objective of this proposal is to build a cost-effective and flexible paint planning and estimating system to enhance the surface coating processes of U.S. shipyards. Utilizing parts and product information from the shipyards product model environment, the proposed paint planning system will calculate surface areas of parts and assemblies that require painting. Information management functions will provide the appropriate information for paint shop bidding, estimating, and procurement processes. This proposal will build on Atlantec's TopgallantT suite of interoperability products and the architecture and data models developed in the NSRP ISE projects. The goals of our proposal are to provide advanced paint planning and estimating functions, and to streamline and optimize the surface coating business processes through information management functions. Advanced paint planning processes have the potential to improve the productivity and execution of surface coating operation in shipbuilding significantly. During Phase I of this project Atlantec Enterprise Solutions, Inc. plans to define the paint planning system requirements, to develop product specifications and to prototype an early implementation of the paint planning system in cooperation with its partners  Newport News Shipbuilding  Advanced Research Laboratory - The Pennsylvania State University
