Abstract : To effectively fulfill the responsibility of administration and development of the aids to navigation system in the United States, the Coast Guard has assigned certain tasks to the different echelons of the Coast Guard Organization. This study is a comparative survey of the twelve district branch offices which administer the operations of the aids to navigation system in each district. This study has provided a comparison of the division of work for the supervisors in the branch offices. Through the use of a scatter diagram relating the number of personnel in a branch office to work-load for that office, an approximating curve was drawn establishing a norm, or average for staffing branch offices. In addition, estimates of future personnel requirements for the branch offices were developed. (Author)
