Abstract
The objective for the Phase II research is to develop, and integrate computer tools to provide analysis capabilities to examine system acquisition/sustainment issues and address engineering-level and supportability issues quickly, helping fleet managers/operators to prioritize requirements and select best-value investment options. The computer tools will provide capabilities to support a Life Cycle Analysis of Alternatives and business case assessments for Navy systems enabling analysts and managers to understand the trade space for investment options, including the performance impacts of human systems integration. The primary analysis tools to be considered for enhancement and use are FTI"s commercial, Integrated Cost As an Independent Variable (I-CAIV), and Integrated Cost Estimation (ICE) tools, and other analysis tools associated with the commercial Ship System Affordability Tool Suite. In addition, sources of human performance data will be addressed, including Navy data systems such as VAMOSC and information/data from other companies that are researching aspects of human performance assessments and cost analysis. This Phase II research effort will refine and apply the FTI affordability tool suite to multiple logistics/supportability planning and analysis needs associated with the Engineering and Supportability Decision System (ESDS) being developed by the Naval Surface Warfare Center Port Hueneme (NSWC PHD).
