Sea Systems Test Case- DDG51 Arleigh Burke Destroyer

This test case is based on the Sea Systems Template 881C structure, weight distributions, and manufacturing complexities. All hardware objects are scaled to the weight of Arleigh Burke destroyer. No changes are made to the software objects of the template. This example uses schedule dates of the Arleigh Burke program. No attempt has been made to simulate the Arleigh Burke’s design heritage or quantities of spares, prototypes, and production units. Therefore, this example should be viewed as an illustration of how the sea system template can be used to produce a rough cost estimate of a known naval program.
