Abstract:

The well-known Statistical Analysis System is used to reduce high-dimensional vectors of data on operational readiness. Such data consist of large numbers of scores for individual ships assigned by experts. The purpose is to provide a robust method of representing the data by a small number of scores that are meaningfully related to the original scores and that allow classification and clustering of the ships on relevant readiness scales.
