2 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.
3 Career Planning Insight (Soule’s view) Keep options open, 2 paths to O6/Command as long as possibleNo one path to O6/CommandPerformance will always be #1 factorDevelop the KSAs you need for future jobs, it’s not just about OJTAlways think one or two jobs aheadObserve and get mentoring from senior officersPersonal development planHave fun!Keys are not having a particular job or path, but rather gaining the knowledge, insight, and experience you need to be a successful CO/O6.

10 JO Industrial Tour Success Strategies Know your customers and what they value.Read “Lean Thinking” and “The Toyota Way;” think about where and why we fall short.Read and understand the Shipyard Business Plan.Get involved in Carrier or Sub Team One.Update your career planner and always have available for "drive by career counseling" opportunities. You will get better mentoring if you frequently ask “Why do we …?”Complete all DAWIA quals possible during this tour.Always be thinking about what you want to learn and get better at doing. What skill sets are you building for Navy problems?If there is a Shipyard CO shadow program at your command, get on the schedule ASAP.handwritten items:1. Qualify basic watch station early.2. Study organization and learn what people really do.3. Build credibility with civilians.4. Get a mentor, particularly.5. Boardsmanship (especially for SWOs).6. Establish qual plan/curve (begin with end in mind). Your A4W qual plan at PSNS.7. Critical thinking (ie process weaknesses, limits of metrics, org blind spots).8. Soule experience at PSNS.
11 Decision Games/Case Studies Running out of money in CVN RCOHWhat to do when you realize your new construction ship is going to be late.CVN missing PCD (SY, N43, Ship perspectives) -> This is CVN 72 dPIA. Who do you tell, what do you tell them, how to brief flag officers?Should nuclear work be deferred outside a CVN availability? How do you decide? What is the impact? Who do you tell and what do you tell them?Running out of money in CVN RCOH (CVN 68). How to build consensus in the carrier community for getting more money to finish? How to you prioritize new work until the money is available? What do you do with the money after it arrives since the work that has to be done is not in the work package?How to align the carrier community to produce a coherent set of numbers for FY08/09 SY work?You are OPS Officer at a Naval SY. Submarine availabilities are significantly higher than notionals. What problems does this cause in a mission funded environment and what can be done about it? Who do you tell and what do you tell them?

23 Affordability of the 313 Ship Navy Steady-State Replacement Rate For Proposed 313-Ship Fleet. … the steady-state procurement rate for the Navy’s proposed 313-ship fleet would be roughly 9.5 ships per year for ships of all types, and roughly 7.3 per year for larger ships (i.e., ships other than LCSs).To compensate for the below-steady-state rate of Navy ship procurement since the early 1990s (see Appendix C), maintaining a fleet of about 313 ships, including 55 LCSs, will require an average procurement rate in coming years higher than the steady-state rate. Assuming an average 35-year life for Navy ships, the required rate might be about 11.2 ships per year including LCSs, and about 8.7 ships per year for ships other than LCSs. If average ship life is assumed to be closer to 30 years, which some observers believe is a more realistic figure, then the required shipbuilding rate might be closer to about 14.7 ships per year including LCSs, and about 11.4 ships per year for ships other than LCSs.The Navy currently builds 4-6 ships per year at a cost of $8.9 billionNavy 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 shipsNo cost growth: personnel, ship cost, operationsIncreased commonality between ship classes at the component level
