Abstract:

This thesis is a study of the technology adoption chain on implementing LED lights on Navy ships and to determine if there is any disparity between stakeholders Cost Benefit Analysis CBA perspectives. It also analyzes the soft sell items that were not considered in the first CBA conducted for the Navy. The full-time equivalent sailor was determined to provide another perspective of how many sailors it actually takes to change a light bulb given a set of variables through the course of a year. The number of full-time equivalent sailors provides an opportunity cost of how many sailors a year each ship will employ only changing one type of light bulb in a given year.
