Abstract
OPNAV N834 (Expeditionary Readiness) presently uses an N81 accredited Capability Costing Model (CCM) to inform the annual sustainment requirements for the Navy Expeditionary Combat Enterprise (NECE). The CCM is dated, limited in capability, and lacks adaptability for incorporating measures such as readiness. The lack of a readiness cost model limits proper programmatic assessments on force readiness issues, including costs of readiness achieved and impacts to readiness based on "what-if" drills. The objective of this research is to analyze execution data, phases of Optimized Fleet Response Plan (OFRP), readiness, and other relevant unit and OFRP phase data to identify the cost drivers of the annual sustainment requirements of NECE. We will dissect the existing CCM, assess the importance of factors in accurately predicting sustainment spending, and explore avenues for model enhancement.
