Benefit-Function Of Two- Identical Cold Standby Navy Ship Subject Failure Due To Fire-Fighting Systems Or Communications, Electrical Systems And Forward Propulsion Plagued By Flawed Designs
USS Freedom (LCS 1) is the lead ship of the Freedom class of littoral combat ships (LCS). She is the third vessel
of the United States Navy to be so named for the concept of freedom. She is the design competitor produced by
the Lockheed Martin consortium, in competition with the General Dynamics- designed USS Independence. She was
officially accepted by the Supervisor of Shipbuilding Gulf Coast on behalf of the US Navy from the Lockheed
Martin/Marinette Marine/Gibbs and Cox team in Marinette, WI on 18 September 2008. She is designed for a variety of
missions in shallow waters, capable against submarines, small ships, minesweeping and umanitarian relief but not designed
to take on large Warships. The ship is a semi-planing monohull design capable of over 40 knots (74 km/h; 46 mph).
Commissioned in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on 8 November 2008, USS Freedom is home-ported in San Diego. In this paper we
have taken Failure due to fire-fighting systems or communications, electrical systems and forward propulsion plagued by
flawed designs. When the main unit fails due to Failure due to fire-fighting systems plagued by flawed designs. then cold
standby system becomes operative. Failure due to fire-fighting systems plagued by flawed designs cannot occur
simultaneously in both the units and after failure the unit undergoes very costly repair facility immediately. Applying the
regenerative point technique with renewal process theory the various reliability parameters MTSF, Availability, Busy period,
Benefit-Function analysis have been evaluated.
