Pagination or Media Count:
An analysis of the traditional Navy watch system and a proposed alternative is presented. Current research on sleep deprivation and the effects of demanding workrest schedules is documented and discussed as a basis for key assumptions in the analysis. Methodology is also presented for determining the relative ability of the two schedules to meet the assumed minimum sleep requirements. The results favor the alternate schedule as efficient for allocating available time resources to meet established sleep requirements.
