Ship Redesign

Munro worked with Maritech ASE NSRP to redesign the lube oil system on a ship which resulted in a 98% reduction in parts, 81% reduction in cost, with an annual savings of $1.416 Million USD.


Our motto is that systems need to work right the first time.  Munro has more than once brought docked and inoperable craft back to life as well as create new systems that will be serviceable and reliable.

“Following the initial design and development of the Astute Class the programme was given a challenge of reducing the Unit Price Cost (UPC) for Boats 4 to 7. This required the project to challenge existing designs to reduce material and labour costs. The Lean Design work with Munro Associates provided a structured process to analyze the design and identify improvements. It contributed to a successful programme of work that delivered significant savings, meeting the challenges faced by the project.”

Peter Newman, Head of Adjacent Business, BAE Systems Maritime – Submarines

“45% less parts, 75% less fasteners, 60% less manufacturing operations. 4 Ship savings about $750,000 and 6,700 hours.”

Munro was a key player in the redesign for improved quality, reliability and cost of the Virginia Class submarine, Astute, and the Electric Boat submarine. Numerous systems were evaluated and improved throughout these ships.
