Abstract:

The purpose of this study exercise has been aimed at determining how the Design-to-Cost principlesgoals established by DOD Directive 5000.1 and focused by SECNAVINST 5000.1 are actually applied at the working level in a Navy Project Office. The project studied in this report, The Advanced Lightweight Torpedo ALWT was in its conceptual phase, just prior to DSARC 1. The Project Office was in the process of writing a definitive Design-to-Cost Plan, specifically for ALWT, but certainly applicable, if successful, as a guide, to any future project office. While this paper deals almost entirely with the Conceptual Phase application, the ALWT DTC plan speaks to the entire life cycle of the project.
