Abstract:

This thesis analyzes engineering readiness and training onboard United States Navy surface ships On the west coast, the major contributor to training is the Afloat Training Group, Pacific ATGPAC The primary objective is to determine whether the readiness standards provide pertinent insight to the surface force Commander and generate alternatives that may assist in better characterization of force-wide engineering readiness, The Type Commander has many questions that should be answered, Some of these are addressed with Poisson and binomial models, The results include first, age of a ship has no association with performance of drills and that the number of discrepancies is associated with the performance of drills second, drill performance decreased from the first initial assessment IA to the second IA third, on average, the number of material discrepancies decreases from the IA to the underway demonstration UD for ships observed over two cycles fourth, good ships do well on four programs finally, training is effective,
