why you should do carriers
Why You Should “Do” Carriers
  • The problems you encounter are really the Navy’s highest priorities.
  • The resource sponsors understand and value maintenance.
  • While the problems are complex, you get great support and rapid attention.
  • Carriers have enough money to work ahead of most of their problems.
career planning insight soule s view
Career Planning Insight (Soule’s view)
  • Keep options open, 2 paths to O6/Command as long as possible
    • No one path to O6/Command
  • Performance will always be #1 factor
  • Develop the KSAs you need for future jobs, it’s not just about OJT
    • Always think one or two jobs ahead
    • Observe and get mentoring from senior officers
    • Personal development plan
  • Have fun!

supship manning bath groton newport news gulf coast
SUPSHIP Manning Bath, Groton, Newport News, Gulf Coast
  • SUPSHIP Manning directly linked to CNO (N8) Navy Shipbuilding Plan
  • OPNAV (N81) accredited SUPSHIP model (SWFT) calculates manning & funding requirements across the FYDP
  • Change in Shipbuilding plan = Change in SUPSHIP requirements
  • SWFT accounts for geographic disparities, shipbuilder competence, & ship design complexity

In FY07:

  • NAVSEA agreed to fund FY08 -09 SUPSHIP CIVPERS shortfalls via CDRs Reserve
    • Not sustainable long term
  • OPNAV N8F agreed to fund POM10 and future
    • FY10 requirement funded!!
    • Divergence from requirement beginning in FY11

2006 rand evaluation of shipbuilding costs
2006 RAND Evaluation of Shipbuilding Costs
  • Highlights of Findings
  • 7.4%-10.8% annual inflation from 1950- 2000 for Battle Force Ships (Amphibs, Combatants, CVNs, Attack Subs)
  • ~50% due to economic factors such as labor and commodities
  • ~50% due to customer-driven factors such as capability (requirements creep) and build rate
  • Recommendations
  • Increase investments in producibility
  • Increase procurement stability
  • Fund technology and efficiency improvements
  • Improve management stability
  • Change GFE-program management controls
  • Employ batch production scheduling
  • Consolidate the industrial base
  • Encourage international competition/participation
  • Build ships as a vehicle
  • Change the design life of ships
  • Buy a mix of mission focused and multi-role ships
  • Build commercial-like ships
affordability of the 313 ship navy
Affordability of the 313 Ship Navy
  • The Navy currently builds 4-6 ships per year at a cost of $8.9 billion
  • Navy needs to build 200 ships over the next 20 years at a average annual cost of $14 billion (forty percent increase above the current budget).
  • Navy assumes no real growth in the Navy's top line—how can we buy the ships we need?
    • Lower maintenance costs for in service ships
    • No cost growth: personnel, ship cost, operations
    • Increased commonality between ship classes at the component level
other navy shipbuilding challenges
Other Navy Shipbuilding Challenges
  • Maintaining the industrial base
  • Current ship designs are too expensive for the funds available
  • Cost growth on lead ships of a class
  • Lifecycle support costs of all weapons systems and platforms are on unsustainable trend lines

Summary

Roles of SUPSHIP

ACO, NSA, Tech Authority, Quality Assurance

Contract delineates requirement

Unfunded Reqts – Contract Change

On Site Govt Representatives

Program Office, NAVSEA, Fleet, Govt Vendors

SUPSHIP commands cannot easily grow/contract for workload

Crew Support - Ship’s Force is often caught in the middle of repair/construction problems. SUPSHIP has to be prepared to stand up for the things they need to be successful
