Abstract
Manning of new construction ships in preparation for fleet introduction requires the utilization of considerable Navy resources, both in terms of personnel lost to the fleet and dollar costs. Criticism by the General Accounting Office and Navy self-evaluation of new construction manning occurred in the 1969-1971 time-frame and resulted in the development of the Fleet Introduction Team concept. The CG 47 Class Guided Missile Cruiser construction program has fostered another alternative method for accomplishing fleet introduction, pat­terned after the manning concept employed in nuclear powered ship construction programs. The objective of the thesis is to evaluate the various methods of introducing a new construction ship into the fleet by accomplishing a cost compari­son of different methodologies and to provide a model which can be used by the Navy on future programs to perform such an evaluation. The author's conclusions are; 1) the nucleus crew, balance crew concept is becoming obsolete, 2) use of the Fleet Introduction Team concept should be expanded, and 3) there is a need for early decisions relative to manning new construction ships.
