VIRGINIA-Class Submarine: Two for Four in 2012 (B) Harvard Case Solution & Analysis

This is a Darden case study. The VIRGINIA-class submarine was among the greatest naval-acquisition endeavors in history, calling for the building of 30 submarines at an acquisition cost of $93 billion. By FY05, the VIRGINIA-type plan was in its 10th year. Construction had started on seven subs.

Unit costs were running 41% over the baseline budget, and production aims weren't being fulfilled. Ship construction budget limitations necessitated a 20% unit-cost reduction, an unprecedented endeavor in serial production already on a ship.
