Frigate Sea Systems Test Case- F710 La Fayette 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 La Fayette. No changes are made to the software objects of the template. This example uses schedule dates of the La Fayette program. No attempt has been made to simulate the La Fayette’s 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.
