Abstract:

The purpose of this thesis is to analyze the effect of personnel turnover on the performance of operational Navy units. The Survival Tracking File developed by NPRDC is utilized to determine the rate of turnover aboard a sample of 40 ships. Descriptive data such as length-of-service, years of education, age, etc., are selected to provide demographic information for the people involved in the turnover. Summary CASREP maintenance data were converted to total maintenance downtime per quarter for each unit and used as the measure of ship performance. The relationship between downtime and turnover was examined at the global or aggregate level and the individual ship level. The data were unable to support any correlation between turnover and ship performance at either level. In addition no relationship was found within classes of ships when grouped by age, type, or size. Descriptive demographic statistics, relative to the personnel involved in the turnover, are provided.
