SNAME To Play Major Role

In Converting Milspecs

To Commercial Standards

The Society of Naval Archi- tects and Marine Engineers (SNAME) in cooperation with the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA), and the American

Society for Testing and Mate- rials (ASTM), is going to make a major effort to help develop more U.S. Shipbuilding Stand- ards.

The Technical and Research (T&R) Steering Committee of the society has approved a plan for technical experts of the T&R panels to review and update se- lected naval specifications and standard drawings before their development into voluntary ship- building standards. This will serve to speed up the National

Shipbuilding Standards Program.

There are many thousands of

MILSPECS, a portion of which are ideal for converting into commercial shipbuilding stand- ards. SNAME will do the job of updating with the aid of T&R volunteers, and turn them over to the ASTM Committee F-25 on shipbuilding for development into published standards.

SNAME officials said it is an accepted fact that an extensive and comprehensive set of ship- building standards can be instru- mental in lowering costs and im- proving the shipbuilding process.

The ASTM program to develop shipbuilding standards was be- gun in 1977 with the reactiva- tion of the SNAME Panel SP-6 (Standards and Specifications) of the Ship Production Committee of the society. Panel SP-6 has been serving as the industry's guidance committee as the stand- ards are being developed through

ASTM consensus process and published by that organization.

Panel SP-6 will serve as

SNAME's control committee on this expanded program of com- mercializing the MILSPECS, co- ordinating the flow through the

SNAME organization to the

ASTM committees.
