Electrical Standards – Improvement and standardization
Wiley Falks III, Rhett Johnson, Ryan Kliebert, Sean Murphy, Nick Myrick, Tony Taylor, T.J. Wallace and Albert Williams
This dedicated group collaborated with the U.S. Navy's Supervisor of Shipbuilding Gulf Coast to create a single electrical standards document for all cable way hangers to stabilize engineering, design, procurement, planning, manufacturing, installation and execution. This has streamlined the process of installing the hangers on all ships built at Ingalls.
IT MigrationLynn Bagwell, Josh Barton, Amanda Carlisle, Tyler Gilleland, Rimantas Jocius, Beth Johnson, Noel Prevost, Rumone Stallworth, Ted Taylor and Douglas Williams As a result of the spinoff from Northrop Grumman and the decision to outsource IT infrastructure services to CSC, a transition plan was developed and executed. This team provided extensive project management oversight to all parties involved in the transition, exceeding all quarterly project milestones. Their hard work played a critical role in the successful transition. America (LHA 6) Launch Terrel Anderson, Tim Brown, Amanda Cox, Carol Hawkins, Harry Rucker, Brandon Walker and Howard Westfaul This group supported the record-setting translation of America (LHA 6) on May 19, 2012, and the subsequent launch on June 4. For both critical milestones, the team devised and implemented a new oil recovery system to collect the "float coat" from the ballast tanks of the drydock. The system was utilized to ensure compliance with environmental protection requirements while ensuring a safe and successful launch of the ship in a cost-effective manner. Bolt Shock Test Jim Akins, Chris Massey, Sean Murphy, Dana Williams and Danny Williams This group of shipbuilders developed, contracted and executed a medium-weight shock test process to prove bolts installed aboard LPD 24 were suitable for their intended application. Completing this test within a tight deadline was integral to the successful delivery of LPD 24.
