Continental Tide’s Workflow, Assessment, Verification and Evaluation (WAVE) application excelled during its latest utilization aboard the USS PEARL HARBOR (LSD 52). Continental Tide’s team performed an assessment of the current condition of the ship’s ballast system. The ballast system stabilizes the vessel during on-loading and off-loading of equipment and during normal sailing operations.
Utilizing the WAVE application tool, configured to support the USS HARPERS FERRY (LSD 49) class ballast system, Continental Tide’s team of three engineers completed the assessment, along with associated repairs to equipment, in less than a week. Loaded on portable handheld devices, the assessment tool was configured with assessment check sheets for the various components of the ballast system. The tablet provided necessary assessment inputs, technical documentation references and final report outputs, enabling the job to not only be completed faster and more efficiently, but also providing a greater level of completeness and accuracy.
Continental Tide’s team of six engineers and electricians recently completed the groom and testing of the USCGC Mackinaw (WLBB-30) Integrated Propulsion Plant Switchgear system utilizing the next generation WAVE (Workflow, Assessment, Verification & Evaluation) tablet application.
Developed by Continental Tide engineers, the WAVE application allowed the team to have all necessary technical documentation available for assessment and grooming at the Point of Performance. “Every two-person team had a tablet and I had the master tablet. The tablets were synchronized twice a day and the information was caught up so every team member and the Coast Guard could see it,” said Continental Tide Program Manager Edward Kabak.
