Abstract:

The thesis identifies Navy E-2C and FA-18 squadron metrics that are affected by Technical Representative Tech Rep Usage from Naval Air Technical and Engineering Service Command NATEC. Six different databases are identified that contain the following types of metrics Readiness, Standards and Policy RSP, Maintenance and Supply Chain Management MSCM Fleet Readiness Training Plan FRTP Financial Manpower and Tech Rep Usage. From the databases, twenty-four months of data is collected for 11 E-2C Squadrons and 37 FA-18 Squadrons. Exploratory Data Analysis is conducted to visually identify trends within the metrics as well as relationships amongst Tech Rep usage and the other metrics. At the completion of the Exploratory Analysis an overdispersed Poisson Regression Model is then developed, with a subset of metrics, to predict the number of Tech Rep assists per month. Relationships between the predicted Tech Rep Usage and the predictors in the model are then explored.
