Abstract

The historic development of U. S. Naval Weight Control requirements is summarized and the importance of weight control explained. Computer programs in use at the Mare Island site during the past ten years are described, and the resultant benefits enumerated. Problems have been encountered in using data cards provided by distant design agents, and in determining accurate weights for each of several ships built in general from the same plans but incorporating different selections of change orders. Methods for overcoming these problems are described. The Hunters Point site is currently using a computer program for weight control of a major conversion project. The conversion is not yet complete and the full extent of problems to be experienced is not known, but some of the problems encountered to date are discussed.
