THE AMERICAN SHIPBUILDING ASSOCIATION (ASA)

ASA is the national trade association that represents Americas premier shipbuilders the designers and producers of the safest and most technologically advanced
ships in the world.
Collectively, ASA member shipyards employ more than 90 percent of all workers engaged in ship construction in the United States. Many of them are the largest private-sector employers in the states in which they operate.
ASA also represents 23 partner companies engaged in the design and manufacture of ship systems, components, technologies, equipment and in providing technical support services in support of shipbuilding.
This publication illustrates the vital role Sea Power plays in ensuring every
Americans freedom; the increased risk to our security as a result of benign and indifferent neglect of Sea Power; and the on-going transformation in the industry upon which
the Nation depends to meet our 21st Century Sea Power requirements.

WHY SEA POWER?

The ships of the Navy and Marine Corps are the underpinning of Americas security.When other countries deny the United States the use of their land bases or air space, Americas military might goes by sea.
The sovereign power of American naval forces was vividly demonstrated in the United States retaliation against the
September 1l, 2001 attacks on America. Aircraft Carrier Battle Groups were immediately deployed to New York,
Washington, D.C., and to the west coast to defend America from additional attacks from the air and sea.
Naval forces were the first and most dominant force in bringing down the Taliban regime that harbored
Al Qaeda terrorists in Afghanistan. The United States was denied the use of land bases in the region from which
to stage offensive strikes. As a result, more than 60 naval ships operating in the Arabian Sea, 500 miles from the
land-locked country of Afghanistan, waged the war against the terrorists.
Day One of U.S. retaliation began with cruise missiles being launched against Al Qaeda targets in

The dominant role the Navy performed in the Afghanistan war came at a high cost to a fleet that had
been reduced to half its Cold War size, and that was stretched to its limits in responding to wars and conflicts
around the globe prior to September 11, 2001. The Navy had to withdraw its ships from critical strategic areas and
trouble spots around the globe to amass the needed fire power in the Arabian Sea. The normal six-month deployment cycles of naval ships had to be extended, and Sailors and Marines operated in combat around the clock seven
days a week for months without a break.The war in Iraq continued to stretch the fleet. More than 70 ships, seven
Aircraft Carrier Battle Groups and nine Amphibious Ready Groups participated in the initial stages of the war to
free Iraq.
Long before 9/11, Naval Fleet Commanders were on record that they could not adequately defend the
security interests of the United States with a fleet of only 315-ships.They testified before Congress that the shrinking size of the fleet was forcing them to share ships between hot spots, leaving critical strategic areas without an
ASA 1

American presence; that they were having to deploy Aircraft Carrier Battle Groups without their full complement
of surface combatants and submarines; that maintenance costs were skyrocketing on an overworked fleet; and that
training and shore side leave between deployments for our Sailors and Marines were being cut short.
Long before 9/11, Navy and Marine Corps leaders stated that the Nation required a fleet of 360 to
400 ships, at a minimum, to reduce the growing risks to the security of every American, our freedom, and
economic interests.

In 1987, Americas Navy numbered 594 ships. During the Cold War, U.S. naval forces were called on to
respond to a crisis once every eleven weeks. Prior to the war on terrorism, the fleet had shrunk to 314 ships and
was being called upon to respond to an international crisis once every four weeks. Perilously, while the fleet had

More alarming is the fact that the fleet is on a dive course to 180 ships, if there is not a dramatic increase
in Navy budgets and the numbers of ships procured annually. Despite warnings to the contrary, the Department
of Defense Quadrennial Defense Review of 1997 and 2001 placed the Nations naval fleet requirement at 306 to
310. To maintain a fleet of just 300 ships requires a procurement rate of 10 ships a year for 30 years. If less than
10 ships are ordered in any given year, additional ships must be ordered in subsequent years to make up the shortfall and maintain the force at 300.
However, Department of Defense budgets throughout the 1990s and in the first half of the 2000s have
provided for the procurement of only six ships a year, on average. This rate of naval ship procurement is the lowest in our Nations history since 1932, and if continued, the fleet will shrink to 180 ships as old, technologically
obsolete ships are retired from the fleet.
After more than a decade of neglect in naval fleet investment, more than 12 ships a year must now be
ordered to overcome the deficit. Entering fiscal year 2004, budgets from previous years and 2004 have determined that the fleet will number only 250 50 ships below the 300 force level. In an effort to recover from this
2 ASA

50-ship deficit, as an example, it would take more than 25 years of procuring 12 ships a year to restore the fleet
to a minimum of 300 a force level that would still be 75 ships below what our operational military leaders state
is needed. The chilling question is: what threats and military challenges will America face during this 25 years of
enormous security risk exposure?
As investment in new naval ships plummeted from 19 ships a year during the 1980s to six ships a year
in the 1990s and the first half of the 2000s, the unit price of each ship increased.Anemically low production rates
drove up the unit cost of the thousands of components and materials that go into ships, and shipyard costs rose
due to low, unstable production profiles. This instability has resulted in an inefficient whipsaw effect of massive layoffs followed by huge investments in recruiting and training a new work force to meet short-term work surges.
Extremely low production, combined with uncertain production profiles, have resulted in the Navy buying fewer
ships for its dollar, and forced the Navy to invest an ever larger portion of its budget into repairing and maintaining an overworked, undersized, and aging fleet. These are the symptoms of an investment holiday that has

already made the cost of course correction extremely expensive, painful and hopefully not impossible.
Delay in addressing this national security crisis will compound and exacerbate even further the cost of
rebuilding Americas Sea Power, and will jeopardize the viability and very existence of the industrial and skill base
essential to Americas freedom.

THE

T R A N S F O R M AT I O N

OF

AMERICAN

SHIPBUILDING

Despite massive under-funding of naval ships, Americas premier shipbuilders embarked in the 1990s on
a transformation unparalleled anywhere else in the defense industry. They are investing in technology, in facilities,
and in training their people to provide the U.S. Government and commercial customers with the most technologically advanced ships in the world.These investments and productivity improvements will result in huge cost savings to the U.S. Government and other customers once production is increased and stabilized.
American shipbuilders have transformed their companies through the introduction of radical changes
in work processes and practices. At the center of this transformation is the design/build approach. With
ASA 3

design/build, ship design is determined by a number of teams composed of customer managers, key component
suppliers, shipyard designers, and construction supervisors. This approach results in a ship design that is technically
superior and producible at a lower cost, and a ship that is dramatically less expensive to operate and maintain
over its life.
To support this transformation, shipbuilders have invested in the most advanced computer-aided design,
analytic, and manufacturing tools available in the commercial marketplace, and are training their work force to use
the tools optimally. Three-dimensional digital drawings of components, systems, and modules are prepared in real
time, reviewed, and changed as necessary before the first piece of steel is ever cut. The flexibility inherent in the

design/build process enables shipbuilders to evaluate and insert new technologies as they are developed, thereby
enhancing spiral development and ensuring superior capabilities for the most advanced ships of the 21st Century.
American shipbuilding transformation is constantly pushing the envelope of manufacturing and assembly processes. Americas shipbuilders have invested in cutting-edge computer-controlled machines such as robotic
welders, lasers, water-jet cutters, and pipe benders tools that enable U.S. shipbuilders to reduce man-hours while
improving quality. Major investments are ongoing in state-of-the-art automated steel fabrication facilities, enhanced
pre-erection outfitting capabilities, innovations in manufacturing processes and techniques, dry docks, cranes, and
optimum efficiency layouts of production facilities. Every aspect of design and manufacture in American shipyards
is benefiting from this transformation.
However, the tremendous levels of investment in the 1990s and early 2000s cannot be sustained without a dramatic increase in ship orders. Such investments in transformation will cease if new orders are not forthcoming to assure a return on future investments. Furthermore, the U.S. Government will not benefit from lower
unit costs as a result of these transformations if production quantities are not increased.
The era of benign and indifferent neglect of Americas Sea Power fleet must come to an end, and be
replaced by a dawning of a renewed commitment to recapitalize the United States naval fleet the cornerstone
of Americas military strength.
