Abstract:

Each time a major defense review is undertaken, policymakers must confront a range of complicated issues about the Navys future force structure, including resource concerns and significant changes in the shipbuilding industrial base. To help answer these concerns, analysts in the Office of the Secretary of Defense OSD and the Chief of Naval Operations CNO staff turn to the available analytical tools to help provide options to decisionmakers. Although an array of such tools exists, there is a significant need for improvement to ensure that policy and resource decisions are well analyzed and supported.
