A Diagnostic Approach to Weapon System Lifecycle Support: The Phalanx Close-in Weapon System
MetadataShow full item record
This study discusses a diagnostic approach to examining the lifecycle support system of a weapon system - specificaly illustrating the approaches for the US Navy Phalanx Close-in Weapon System (CIWS). This study identifies the program's influential cost factors and system performance drivers. As a diagnostic approach to the lifecycle suppport of the Phalanx Weapon System, the study creates a hypergraph describing the relation between factors and drivers and their effect on operational readiness. The research also suggests areas for further study.
