The upgrade matrix provides a mechanism that will allow the stakeholders to more effectively work together in outlining future platform enhancements, highlight the potential array of options open for negotiation and subsequently rank those options in order of operational benefit. The insertion of the latest technological advancements can be implemented via the progressive procurement approach through either adopting incremental or spiral development. This staged ramp-up of product functionality aims to alleviate the management of project risk by allowing useful capability to be fielded sooner and provide feedback from end-user experience of interim increments.

These functions are rated against capability gaps and importance weightings. The set of options can then be assessed for their contribution. The result is the identification of the most appropriate upgrade projects. Figure 11 presents the upgrade matrix complete with data from an illustrative example based on a naval surface combatant vessel. The matrix is composed of six tables. The analysis begins with populating the user functions table. This converts the end-user’s requirements into a set of systematic functional needs through the use of the function analysis method.

Therefore, rather than solely focusing the technology insertion activities on product-centric changes, there is the opportunity to consider process orientated improvements and the betterment of the associated platform support arrangements. Investments could be made by building additional maintenance facilities or through purchasing additional repair equipment [62]. Additionally, new technologies and business practices can be applied to reduce the time taken for maintenance. This would mean a platform is available to operators more often [62].
