Abstract:

This report considers an effort to reinvent the process by which the Navy transforms operational requirements into surface combatants. The objective is to articulate a new framework for total ship system engineering. For this, three things are necessary a culture of teamwork permitting a unified system engineering effort a common framework for total ship system engineering and agreed-to concepts, standards, and tools for design integration. The work is being conducted as a collaborative effort involving three warfare centers and various headquarters activities in Washington. The strategy involves a focus on a family of backbone control structures that provide the means for mission teams to operate a ship as a coherent entity. Subsequent efforts will address how the approach can be implemented in future programs. MM
