PLANNING FOR NAVY SHIP ACQUISITION

The Analytic Sciences Corporation, under contract to the Office of Naval Research, has performed a preliminary analysis of the cost and feasibility of achieving efficient work load distribution in the shipbuilding industry through competitive allocation. This analysis has included a detailed investigation of the planning and procurement methodologies which are currently in use by the Navy and has considered the feasibility for the development of an analytic tool which would permit achievement of an efficient work load models the interaction between the shipbuilding industry and the Navy. It is anticipated that the use of a computer model will permit consideration of efficient labor utilization in the shipbuilding industry and its interaction with the Navy's budgeting, force planning, and procurement processes. It will provide decision makers with a tool permitting them to test for the predicted results of different shipbuilding decisions thereby permitting consideration of a greater range of options. /Author/
