Abstract:

The objective of this thesis is to investigate a means of incorporating producibility as a major design factor in all phases of design of naval surface combatants. A categorization scheme is established for the consideration of producibility. A methodology is developed for evaluation of peacetime producibility concepts. A computer program enhancement to the ship synthesis model ASSET creates and interim producibility assessment tool by analyzing ship acquisition cost in further detail beyond the one-digit SWBS level. The proposed methodology and the producibility assessment tool are demonstrated on a proposed producibility concept.
