The purpose of this project is to analyze Ticonderoga Class Cruiser Operating Targets (OPTAR) for the Atlantic Fleet (LANTFLT) and the Pacific Fleet (PACFLT). The scope of the analysis focused on the Ticonderoga Class Cruisers - the surface combatants with the least amount of configuration differences among the class. This project was conducted with the sponsorship and assistance of Commander Naval Surface Forces (CNSF). The goal of this project is to provide CNSF with underlying causes which explain lower expenditures for LANTFLT than PACFLT in the sub accounts of Other Consumable (SO), Repair (SR), and Administrative (SX). Due to levels of data available and the proportion of total expenditures that each sub-account represented, the emphasis of the analysis was concentrated on the Other Consumable and the Repair Parts Sub-accounts. The project developed a methodology to analyze expenditures within the cruiser class by three different levels; the sub-account level, the expense element level, and the system level. The cruisers were classified into groups based on their fleet, homeport, area classification (OCONUS or CONUS), and baseline configuration, at the sub-account and expense element level to see if there were relationships within the different groupings.
