End date: 2024-03-31
Schedule text: Boat 4 has launched and will depart Barrow in 2018. Having conducted a comprehensive cost and risk analysis across the Enterprise, it is intended that approval will be sought to deliver Boats 5-7 at revised but realistic schedules. While broadly stable throughout 17/18, delays to the programme have historically been caused by a combination of factors including Industrial performance and also the late provision of essential components to the Build line (Both Industry and MOD have in the past been liable). The Operational Handover dates sought in the forthcoming Whole Programme Review have been subject to comprehensive Schedule Risk Analysis.
Baseline: £541.08m
Forecast: £562.62m
Variance: 4.00%
Variance text:
Whole Life Cost: £9,941.96m
WLCost text: Overall variation to the Whole Life Costs have been influenced by schedule delays, increased labour rates and by an increase of Barrow Build Infrastructure overheads. A Whole Programme re-approval approach in 2018 will deliver an improved assessment of risk management.
