The Royal Navy's new-generation Type 45 destroyer : acquisition options and implications by J. L Birkler( )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1,353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2001, RAND helped the United Kingdom_s Ministry of Defence (MOD) evaluate different acquisition strategies that it might use to acquire the new-generation Type 45 destroyer. RAND_s analyses helped in determining whether the MOD should have the Type 45 built by one company or two, whether it should compete the 12 ships in the class or directly allocate work to specific shipbuilders, and whether companies producing the Type 45 should construct the destroyer in its entirety in one shipyard or from blocks produced in several shipyards
Learning from experience. lessons from the United Kingdom's Astute submarine program by John F Schank( )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 514 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Large, complex submarine design and construction programs demand personnel with unique skills and capabilities supplemented with practical experiences in their areas of expertise. Recognizing the importance of past experiences for successful program management, the United Kingdom's Ministry of Defence (MOD) asked the RAND Corporation to develop a set of lessons learned from its Astute submarine program that could help inform future program managers. RAND reviewed the history of UK nuclear submarines, investigated how operational requirements were set for the Astute class; explored the acquisition, contracting, design, and build processes that the Astute program employed; and assessed the plans and activities surrounding integrated logistics support for the Astute. The impact of the substantial time gap between the design and build of the Astute and its predecessor nuclear submarines was greatly underestimated by the private sector and the MOD, and both parties underestimated the impact of the MOD's decision to shift responsibilities to the private sector. Designing and building a submarine requires careful management and oversight and a delegation of roles and responsibilities that recognizes which party--the shipbuilder or the government--is best positioned to manage risks

The United Kingdom's naval shipbuilding industrial base : the next fifteen years( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The United Kingdom has many contracted and prospective shipbuilding programmes on the horizon over the next two decades. The UK Ministry of Defence wants to know whether the United Kingdom's existing industrial base will be able to meet the requirements of this shipbuilding plan. Using extensive surveys and a breadth of data, RAND researchers look at the capacity of the UK shipbuilding industrial base and how alternative acquisition requirements, programmes, and schedules might affect MOD plans
Options for reducing costs in the United Kingdom's future aircraft carrier (CVF) programme( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2012 and 2015, respectively, the United Kingdom's Ministry of Defence (MOD) will replace its three Invincible-class aircraft carriers with two Future Aircraft Carriers (CVFs), the largest ships ever constructed for the Royal Navy. In preparation for this project, the MOD asked RAND to look at the economic implications, schedule impact, and technical risks of adopting new technologies and alternative manufacturing options. The research described in this report, based on the design and manning data available at the time, focuses on possible reductions in whole-life costs and manpower requirements of the carriers. Concerning reduced acquisition costs-based on figures from various cost analysis models-the researchers suggest options such as using construction practices from the commercial shipbuilding industry plus commercial systems and equipment in place of military standard equipment wherever there is no adverse impact on operations or safety. Regarding personnel cost savings and complement-reducing initiatives, the researchers look towards the practices of private-sector shipbuilding companies and of navies around the globe. Based on this analysis, they recommend, for example, promoting a cross-trained workforce with broad skills and using civilians to augment the ship's crew for nonwarfare responsibilities. Options for reducing the complement examine the trade-offs of increased up-front investments in technology with the corresponding manpower reductions. As the CVF Integrated Project Team continues to explore its many options, the researchers remain optimistic that, given several factors indicated, the CVF's targets can be reached
