This paper will define the Project Management tasks I performed on the USS Stump, DD978 in Brooklyn, New York in 1985-1987, while employed by Pacific Ordnance and Electronics (Pac-Ord). The project began with the bidding process and successfully getting the job. The scope of the work done on this vessel was the installation of new electronics systems and the repair of some existing equipment, which included three radar systems and a variety of Communications equipment. The bulk of the work was the installation of a new missile system VLS, incorporating ASROC, Harpoon and Tomahawk missiles with the associated data link systems. The value of the electronics portion of the contract, at bid, was two million dollars and grew to 2.75 million dollars at job completion. The entire contract took eighteen months to complete. We were a sub-contractor to the operator’s of the Brooklyn Shipyard facility. Our job was to work in concert with the shipyard in completing the project on time and to the satisfaction of the US Navy Inspectors. Major coordination was required to balance the schedule and requirements of the US inspectors, Shipyard coordinators and meeting milestones along the project to ensure percentile payments.
