Abstract : This report is based on the premise that total ship system engineering should seek to maximize value delivered to mission teams on a life cycle basis. The first step in defining a ship is to consider its purpose and how warfighters envision its use. Primary emphasis is on understanding what future mission teams must do, what the associated operating processes will be like, and what information will be needed to execute those processes. Success is achieved only when an executable system design description has been produced and acceptance criteria for the ship have been nailed down. These criteria reflect how the user will see the ship and key mission systems (and interact with them) as the tasks laid out by the concept of operations are performed.
