Abstract
The US Navy is tasked with managing the complex problem of forecasting and scheduling shipyard resources and ships through the shipyards to accomplish required ship and ship system maintenance and upgrade actions. NAVSEA, in cooperation with the Commander, U.S. Fleet Forces Command (CFFC), schedules maintenance availability periods for submarines, ships, and aircraft carriers. The CFFC develops schedules to meet Fleet Response Plan (FRP) surge and forward presence requirements. ASSETT proposes to develop the Shipyard Workload Integrated Forecasting Tool (SWIFT) to support this process providing a high level, automated optimization decision support tool for executives. SWIFT will support the maintenance scheduling function for CFFC and will be used by NAVSEA to provide information to OPNAV and CFFC to recommend multiple alternative courses of action at the fleet scheduling conferences. The objective is to provide an executive decision level analysis tool that evaluates a large number of scheduling alternatives using optimization algorithms that generate a set of corporate level schedule alternatives that minimize cost, minimize schedule disruption, and meets operational schedule constraints to maximize fleet readiness.
