Project Overview

The Sayres team in Bath, ME specializes in ship construction discrepancy management and has supported multiple shipbuilding programs, including PMS 385, PMS 400D, and PMS 500. This work focuses on database management, underway shipboard trials support, configuration and networking, data analytics, and quality assurance.

Navy shipbuilding programs often require a series of Test & Trials events to evaluate the material fitness of newly constructed ships. These various trials involve numerous, detailed demonstrations of engineering and mission systems; the preparation is labor-intensive and requires acute de-confliction, while the execution requires all stakeholders are aligned, communicating effectively, and working toward a common goal. Balancing the multitude of stakeholders is critically important to the success of a Builders, Acceptance, Final Contracts, or Sea Trial. When these Test & Trials occur, it requires a large team with deep expertise in each facet of evaluation, including electrical, mechanical, damage control, combat, navigation, and many more. This is where Sayres personnel can deliver exceptional naval support.

Solution

Coordinating a ship trials event is no small feat. Sayres possesses a keen understanding of the planning and execution processes and milestones that lead to a successful event. Our staff is experienced, educated, and prepared to bring solutions to the table. With a long history of involvement in multiple shipbuilding programs, our staff has played a pivotal role in establishing the industry standard for discrepancy management. These experts provide accurate tracking, management, and resolution of discrepancies documented during ship construction. Some of our primary tasks in this area include managing the STIG/accreditation requirements for computing assets, tracking GFE materials, traveling to support underway events, serving as a database administrator for trial card software applications (to include testing and configuration), analyzing and communicating metrics, and more.
