The decision process model is exercised to assess and compare four ship concept variants of a 3, 000-ton notional littoral combat ship (LCS) that the U.S. Navy is considering. The four ship variants compare the steel baseline, the light-weight aluminum, the fiber glass composite and the advanced carbon-fiber composite ships. The relative rank order of the LCS ship variants is discussed and demonstrated the usefulness of the developed decision aid model. The stability of the model is also assessed by performing sensitive analyses using the 90% confidence values for the dominating attributes weights. The results show that the model is stable based on the attribute weights developed. It is also relatively easy to use and apply to naval or commercial ship selection processes.Kockums AB, a€œThe VISBY Class Corvette, a€ corporate brochure, http://www. kockums.se am, Kraine, G.L. and Sigurder, I., a€œProducibility in ...
