Abstract:

The study project provides an analysis of the impact of manpower and training on the life cycle costs of a weapon system. The data base for the report entails structured interviews, unpublished documents, and review of existing instructions and directives. The report is of significant importance to the Navy because of the increased demands that new weapon systems acquisitions place on the limited quantity of skilled operators and technicians within the Navy. Weapon systems are being developed which require specialized skills which are not available and generate life cycle costs which are significantly higher than original estimates.
