Since 2010, the MoD has been working with BAE Systems to determine the key capabilities and baseline design for the Royal Navy’s next generation of warships. This has required a large number of strategic decisions to be made, such as cost tradeoffs and capability requirements for systems and equipment; how many people need to be accommodated onboard; and how best to maintain the ship through-life. Decisions taken at this point have implications for many decades to come.
This brief case study describes how these trade-offs were made, culminating in the Capability Decision Point and subsequent endorsement by the MoD Investment Approvals Committee.
