The increasing cost of manpower in the United States Navy has generated a new initiative identified as Smart Ship. Smart Ship, or the uses of technology for manpower reduction, challenges the culture, tradition and policies of the Navy. The life cycle cost for surface combatants can be reduced following the guidelines of Smart Ship. However, limited analysis has been conducted into the material readiness cost associated with reduced manning. It was the goal of this thesis to concentrate on the cost and benefits of Smart Ship. A maximum savings of 0.54 percent of the total budget for the Department of the Navy is possible, using FY 1996 dollars. Through analysis conducted in the study, the current objective of reducing manpower costs has been determined to be risky and imprudent. Nevertheless, the United States Navy should pursue Smart Ship to enhance combat effectiveness and quality of life, thereby increasing fleet readiness, morale, productivity and retention. These factors will far outweigh any dollar savings from Smart Ship.

Indirect and direct personnel costs can amount to as much as 40% of a ship's life-cycle or total ownership costs; these costs must be reduced substantially if the Navy is to have a force adequate to meet its projected operational tasking into the next century. have been advertised widely as the path to reduced manning, but they are.

Still, the low cost of small combatants relative to other warships and their ubiquitous use in the fleets of prior global naval powers remind us of their enduring value. It may be worth considering that for the price of one of today’s multi-mission destroyers (a destroyer in name but a modern capital ship in design, size, and cost), a.

The life cycle cost for surface combatants can be reduced following the guidelines of Smart Ship. However, limited analysis has been conducted into the material readiness cost associated with reduced manning.

Manning and Automation Model for Naval Ship Analysis and Optimization ABSTRACT The manning of a ship is a major driver of total ownership cost. The Government Accounting Office (GAO) states that “the cost of the ship’s crew is the largest expense incurred over the ship’s lifetime” .
This cost. U.S. Navy (USN) in both military billets and cost. The Chief of Naval Operations staff has asked: “Is it possible to reduce manning on sur-face combatants to the same degree that MSC and private operators have been able to reduce manning on noncombatants?” To answer this question, we examined the ship manning practices ofFile Size: 1MB.

During the past 4 years, the Navy temporarily reduced the missions of all FFG-7s to those of Naval Reserve Force (NRF) frigates. This led to a reduction in billet requirements. However, operational command-ers expressed concern at these reduced capabilities, which has led to reconsideration of the missions and manpower reductions.

The claim that navies play a vital role in protecting trade routes is taken so much for granted that it might seem untestable.
But it turns out that most of the information needed for a benefit cost analysis is available. Unsurprisingly (to me at least), the claimed benefit of keeping sea lanes open doesn’t stand up to scrutiny. After World War I, the United States returned to its traditional policy of isolation from armed conflicts abroad.
The American Navy was reduced dramatically to around ships and ab personnel. Those numbers remained that way through the s and s.
