Abstract:

The study objective was to investigate the problems of ship manning effectiveness, specifically in the maintenance and repair areas, using various probabilistic modeling and data analytical techniques of operations research. Maintenance and Material Management data from the Maintenance Data Collection System were used for estimating failure rates, repair rates and maintenance deferral rates for each type of equipment. These rates were then used as inputs to the mathematical models. The models could then predict system availability which depends on manning level and the rate of repairs deferred for various reasons.
