Abstract:

During the first phase of this contract, TASC performed a preliminary analysis of the cost and feasibility of developing a model to aid in achieving an efficient work load distribution in the shipbuilding industry through competitive allocation. This included a detailed investigation of the planning and procurement methods currently used by the Navy as well as considering the feasibility of developing an analytic tool to aid the Navy in achieving an efficient work load distribution in the shipbuilding industry. The present study provides continuing background analyses to refine the equation set, to improve the validity of the analytic approach, and to demonstrate the feasibility of the data requirement for the model. Background analyses were performed on 1 The extent of planning problems which result from government furnished equipment, subcontracts and material 2 The influence of government procurement strategy and contract form on the price and competitive relationships and 3 The importance of commercial production and repair and conversion with a view to proper incorporation of these effects in the model for Navy planning purposes and 4 Competition in the industry.
