Sea Systems Test Case- CG47 Ticonderoga Cruiser

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 the Ticonderoga. No changes are made to the software objects of the template. This example uses schedule dates of the Ticonderoga program. No attempt has been made to simulate the Ticonderoga’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.
