SEMINAR “Life Cycle Management by means of Operational Availability (Ao) and Life Cycle Cost (LCC)”

SEMINAR “Life Cycle Management by means of Operational Availability (Ao) and Life Cycle Cost (LCC)”

Wednesday 20th June – Conference Room 1

Main Theme:

Life Cycle Management Organized by means of Operational Availability (OA) and Life Cycle Cost (LCC)

Executive Summary:

Budgets for defence equipment are shrinking and human resources are becoming more critical, while the life cycle needs to face new threats are increasing. This requires a tailored life cycle management approach for Warships development, production and in-service support, in order to achieve the best balance between effectiveness and costs all along the life cycle. Since this objective can be embodied Organized by the “ratio” between the Operational Availability of the Primary System (e.g. the ship) and the Life Cycle Cost of the Operating System (e.g. ships plus associated support system), these two figures were identified as requirements and control measures for the “through-life management” of the Fleet. To evaluate and provide for the financial sustainability of the operating system requires proper design processes, methods, models and the adoption of analytic, simulation-and statistic SW tools. The Italian Navy has developed the specific knowhow and its concrete application put in place in the new constructions.
