Abstract:

The purpose of this MBA professional report is to analyze the operational and maintenance requirements of Landing Craft Utility LCU vessels assigned to Assault Craft Unit One ACU-1 in order to create a methodology in order to develop a requirements-based financial model. This research report analyzes the number of LCUs required to perform assigned tasks based upon maintenance schedules, deployment cycles and training evolutions. In addition, this research report compares expenditures made to the maintenance fund code, operating hours, and the number of craft deployed in order to explain past expenditures. From this, a model was developed that takes into consideration the operational requirements of LCUs to forecast the resources needed to support the craft.
