Description: 

Scope:

This recommended practice provides weight control technical requirements for all phases of commercial surface ship acquisition (such as preliminary design through detail design and construction). The practice also describes different types of weight estimates, reports, and weight control procedures. The purpose of this document is to promote uniformity and standardization in weight control and weight reporting. This document gives weight control technical requirements for MSC and other similar ships and commercial ships on which weight control can be imposed. The requirements in this practice apply (either in part or in total) only as specified in a contractual agreement (e.g., specifications, contract clause, purchase order, etc.) or to satisfy the requirements of the applicable regulatory body. This standard defines weight control technical requirements and describes the various different types of weight estimates and reports that may be contractually required by a ship owner or regulatory body.

This Recommended Practice is presented in two basic sections, General Requirements and Special Requirements Upon Request that are presented in terms of the design phases, Preliminary, Contract Design, Pre-award, Detailed Design and Construction. The General Requirements section applies to all weight control documents and deliverables prepared throughout the entire ship design and construction phases. It also includes requirements or “best practices” that apply throughout all design phases. Under each design phase, specific weight control deliverables are described that may be required by contract for a given ship as well as the recommended weight control practices suggested for each level. Figure 1 provides an overview of weight control technical requirements by the design phases.
