It is critical that the Department of Navy (DON) acquisition personnel and Department of Defense (DoD) support contractors understand the impact to naval ships' weapons systems Total Ownership Cost (TOC) when procuring outfitting equipage and test equipment supporting the maintenance concept. This project focuses on reducing the logistics footprint of U.S. Naval ships through the optimization of weapon system Allowance Equipage Lists (AELs). After reviewing Integrated Logistics Support (ILS) data utilized to support and certify logistically the new construction ships' outfitting, it became apparent that there were many redundancies and other problems associated with the ILS data. The problems within the weapon system AELs include numerous redundancies, Hazardous Materials (HAZMAT) and items that should be on separate outfitting documents. Correcting these problems would circumvent unnecessary costs and would reduce the logistics footprint in the ships' outfitting. The intent of this project is to provide guidance and recommendations for the optimization in the outfitting of equipage, tools, consumables, and test equipment for ships' weapon systems, which will lead to a reduced logistics footprint and reduce TOC during ships' outfitting.
