Frigate Sea Systems Test Case-MEKO 200 Frigate

This test case is based on the Frigate Sea Systems Template 881C structure, weight distributions, and manufacturing complexities. All hardware objects are scaled to the weight of the MEKO 200. No changes are made to the software objects of the template. This example uses schedule dates of the MEKO 200 program. No attempt has been made to simulate the MEKO 200 design heritage or quantities of spares, prototypes, and production units. Therefore, this example should be viewed as an illustration of how the frigate sea system template can be used to produce a rough cost estimate of a known naval program.
