Abstract:

The study surveys the performance, cost, and schedule trade-off process during the ship acquisition cycle, from identification of the need to delivery of the ship. The dialogue between the ship user and the ship producer to develop the ship system requirements and translate the need into a ship which meets the users requirements is discussed. The survey investigates the trade-off techniques used by many of the individuals within the ship project offices of the Naval Ships Systems Command. As a result of investigating how these individuals attempt to optimize the variables of performance, cost, and schedule, some conclusions are drawn and recommendations made for future consideration in the ship acquisition process.
