These parameters, identified in the study Evaluating the Producibility of Ship Design Alternatives, are arrangements, simplicity, material, standardization and fabrication requirements. Since 2011, the Budget Control Act has created a climate wherein cost reductions dominate the program manager’s decision-making process. Consequently, it is important for submarine program managers ...
