This research used afloat uniforms of the United States Navy to explain the costs and benefits of implementing the Navy 2-Piece (PC) flame-resistant uniform. This study examined the history and characteristics of Navy afloat uniforms. It analyzed benefits and costs of implementing the new flame-resistant 2-PC uniform as an additional at sea uniform along with the current improved flame-resistant variant (IFRV) coveralls. The research concluded that even though course of action (COA) 3 (Status Quo) produces the lowest cost, the improved flame-resistant coverall does not provide the versatility and capability that the 2-PC uniform offers sailors to operate in all climates, environments, and workspaces on a daily basis. In comparison to the flame-resistant coverall, the 2-PC has no limitations and delivers the advantages of being deckplate-driven, improving the quality of life and work, satisfying all communities, and offering a better fit and more comfort. COA 2 has a net benefit of -$85,174,785.00, which is not a viable choice as it does not deliver any benefits. Our study has concluded that COA 1 would be the best option, because it will produce a net benefit of $20,637,638.00 while providing numerous non-monetized benefits to our sailors.
