The Cost of Requirements and Emerging Technologies
The paper describes a ship design synthesis process and the engineering model that has been successfully used to help assess the cost of requirements, and the cost versus capability of new technologies, for naval and commercial surface ships. An overview of the approach is followed by descriptions of numerous examples. Assessing and understanding the cost of escalating requirements and technology options via “what if” games early in the design process has been the principal key to minimizing or eliminating the potential for spiraling cost overruns.
