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 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! 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 RCOH What 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?

17 SUPSHIP Functions Traditional Contract Management Functions:
Administrative Contracting Officer Naval Supervisory Authority NAVSEA field engineering Program management Quality Assurance for key shipbuilder processes Non-traditional Functions: Field Pricing Support for new contracts Customer interface Solution facilitation Program management interface Program reviews Work Integration of non NGSB contractors

18 SUPSHIPNN Mission and Goals
Mission of SUPSHIP Newport News Administer contracts for new ship construction, overhauls, and conversion Execute NAVSEA contractual, technical, and fiduciary responsibilities Program management and technical oversight of ship construction and repair (NSA responsibilities) Command Goals Inspect to get what the gov’t expects Improve mission capability Support lower cost of production Supship roles: Regulator, Oversight, Contract Administration Services (financial/fiduciary), and Facilitator of Improvement Assure that NGSB NN adheres to Navy contracts and provide onsite technical/program support between NGSNN and Navy activities.

19 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 FY 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 SUPSHIPs Bath, Groton, Newport News, Gulf Coast This chart shows the Contractor Workload and SUPSHIP Manning. I must remind you that our SUPSHIP workload is not phased exactly as the contractor’s workload. Generally, our resources are applied later in construction, the contractor’s earlier.

22 2006 RAND Evaluation of Shipbuilding Costs
Highlights of Findings 7.4%-10.8% annual inflation from 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

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 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

24 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

25 Significant Challenges Major Initiatives/Actions
SUPSHIP Challenges Significant Challenges AT/FP and physical security requirements across all contractor sites Balance PEO desires with SUPSHIP mission and manning Bridging the gap between now and FY12 manning increases NMCI model does not apply well to Supship Resources to support ERP Impact of BRAC decisions on crew QOL Major Initiatives/Actions Supship Back to Basics SupshipNN Performance Improvement Plan ABS collaboration Maintain Customer-focus ERP implementation Military manning (PMRs) to grow future COs Training all the new hires as “graybeards” retire

32 Summary ACO, NSA, Tech Authority, Quality Assurance
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
