Abstract
The proposal describes a method for developing a dynamic simulation model of the operational and aging processes of Naval Weapons Systems. The simulation model will forecast the logistics requirements for alternative technology choices, including life cycle costs. The model will capture, in as much detail as desired, each of the critical systems and components within a weapons system and track their aging and obsolescence over time. For each system, the model will compute performance deterioration as well. Periodic maintenance and refitting will reset model parameters to reflect increased performance levels. Logisticians and program managers will be able to test a variety of operational "what-if" technology scenarios in order to discover the optimal policies that best meet mission requirements and, at the same time, satisfies both sort-term and long-term logistical budget constraints. Model output will provide cost and performance curves as well as the present value of cumulative costs for new technologies to upgrade ships, weapons systems and support facilities.
