Analyzing and Forecasting Overhead Costs in U.S. Naval Shipbuilding James E. Rogal 1, Abhay Tase, Raphael D. Lockett 1, and Philip C. Koenig ABSTRACT From the perspective of shipbuilding cost analysts, ship design and construction costs can be sorted into three basic categories: direct labor, direct material, and Size: 1MB.

    Spending Pattern for Maintenance and Modernization Navy spending for ship maintenance and modernization has increased from about $ billion in to $ billion in Taking into account the growth in fleet size, average maintenance expenditure per ship has grown from $ million per year to $ million per year during this period.   The Navy’s fiscal year shipbuilding plan calls for buying new ships over the next 30 years at an average cost of $17 billion per year in dollars. Including the costs of all activities funded by the Navy’s shipbuilding account, such as refueling nuclear-powered aircraft carriers and outfitting new ships, the average annual cost of implementing the plan is $ billion.

    CAPITOL HILL: The Navy is 90 percent sure its current estimated cost to operate and maintain the controversial Littoral Combat Ship is off target, according to a draft Government Accountability Author: Sydney J. Freedberg Jr.   But the cost of each ship has more than doubled to $ million." The GAO report declined to make public the cost overrun information for USS Milwaukee, although it said increases for other Navy.

Navy Has Opportunities To Reduce Ship Overhaul Costs The Navy can save several million dollars annu- ally in ship overhaul costs by using the com- ponent remove-and-replace concept. Under this concept, damaged parts are removed and sent to an overhaul point for future repair or scrapped.

Navy has opportunities to reduce ship overhaul costs: report to the Secretary of Defense. The Navy can reduce ship overhaul costs by sending damaged parts to a central point and either repairing them in batches or scrapping them.

The remove-and-replace concept avoids unnecessary repair of items that are available in the supply system and increases shipyard efficiency.

During a midyear review of budget spending, the Navy found it had more than $3 billion in emergency costs that needed to be covered, including nearly $1 billion for ship depot maintenance. The authors also interviewed various shipbuilders to find out their views on other issues contributing to increasing costs.

Based on their analysis, the authors propose some ways the Navy might reduce ship costs in the future, including limiting growth in features and requirements and reconsidering the mission orientation of by: Overhaul Costs in Public and Private Shipyards: A Case Study 6 PERFORMING ORG.

By preventing or reducing drydockings, the ship repair process becomes streamlined and cost effective. By providing the UWSH diver with tools, procedures and technical support to accomplish various underwater repairs, fleet readiness and self-sufficiency are increased.

SEA 05C (formerly SEA ) has been designated as the technical authority for cost engineering at NAVSEA. The NAVSEA Cost Estimating Handbook has been developed to provide a foundation of current, relevant and quality technical standards. The handbook provides information on cost engineering processes for the NAVSEA cost engineering community, as well as providing a ready reference to.

The Navy states that its proposed FY budget requests the procurement of eight new ships. Get this from a library. Navy maintenance: costs to overhaul Navy ships at private shipyards: report to the Chairman, Committee on Appropriations, U.S. Senate. [United States. General Accounting Office.].

What Can Be Done to Reduce Ship Costs. To counter increasing costs, the Navy can target some of the main factors related to cost escalation, such as those related to capability and complexity of the vessels.

he Navy owns and manages four shipyards that maintain, repair, overhaul, and upgrade surface ships and submarines—a range of services that costs the Navy over $3 billion annually.
