Haze gray paint is a critical element to topside preservation, maintenance, and corrosion control on all ships in the United States Navy (USN). This research focuses on the current procedure for procuring haze gray paint in support of the USN fleet, the transition plan for 1K Polysiloxane during drydock maintenance availability, and the inventory level of 1K Polysiloxane in support of the fleet. The research encompasses both qualitative and quantitative analytical tools utilizing historical demand data for Silicone Alkyd and 2K Polysiloxane paint, average number of ships in a drydock maintenance availability, and DOD acquisition procedure and best practices from industries. Other than during a drydock maintenance overhaul period, touch-up painting is done solely by sailors stationed onboard the ship. Having an adequate inventory of paint on hand to support the fleet provides multiple opportunities for cost savings, minimizes waste, and conserves manpower. The end goal is to suggest improvements to the current procurement and supply chain processes, and recommend a procurement procedure in order to minimize the risk of wasted manpower and material while ensuring the fleet is supported with its hazardous materiel needs.
