Abstract:

The acquisition of a large class of ships is a complex and costly undertaking. To bring the myriad of elements which comprise the Integrated Logistics Support ILS effort to bear on the process of acquiring shipssystems in the most efficient manner possible, requires an acquisition environment which supports the intensive effort required to achieve ILS objectives. This thesis examines the ILS efforts associated with the U.S. Navys acquisition of FFG-7 Class ships from conception through operational deployment. Included are the design-to-cost and fly-before-buy concepts and the change in ships operational tasking. Recommendations are provided for improving program management, life- cycle logistics support, and ILS education for future shipbuilding programs. Author
