The primary objective of this study was to quantify, assess, and analyze cost-predictive complexity-oriented benchmarks in the pre-construction phase of the U.S. Navy’s ship acquisition process. The end result was that a consideration of complexity via the methods and algorithms established in this study supported an exponential cost versus complexity relationship to refine the current cost estimation methods and software currently in use in U.S. Navy shipbuilding.
