Abstract: To successfully implement the Surface Navy's Flexible Ships concept, Program Executive Offic-Ships (PEO-SHIPS) requires a new methodology that assesses the total future value of arious combinations of Flexible Ships design features and how they will enable affordable warfighting relevance over the ship's full service life. Examples of Flexible Ships design features include decoupling payloads from platforms, standardizing platformto-payload interfaces, implementing allowance for rapid reconfiguration of onboard electronics and weapons systems, preplanning access routes for mission bays and mission decks, and allowing for sufficient growth margins for various distributed systems. This research analyzes the application of strategic Real Options Valuation (ROV) methodology within the Integrated Risk Management process to assess the total future value of Flexible Ships design features and for use in the Future Surface Combatant Analysis of Alternatives. The current research has the explicit goal of proposing a reusable, extensible, adaptable, and comprehensive advanced analytical modeling process to help the U.S. Navy in quantifying, modeling, valuing, and optimizing a set of ship design options to create and value a business case for making strategic decisions under uncertainty.
