Icebreaker Test Case- Polar Class Replacement

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