NavSea has taken a number of steps-in recent years to identify those elements of the total ship acquisition process which contribute to unnecessarily high ship acquisition costs. This report provides the results of interviews with and questionnaires returned from various shipyards, ship design agents and supervisors of shipbuilding who were asked to identify producibility inhibitors in NavSea standard ship design practices. The responses addressed a broader spectrum, which included USN ship acquisition policies and practices and ship specification language in addition to the standard drawings, design data sheets and other documents which establish requirements which must be followed during the detailed design and ship construction processes.
