A Bayesian method to improve sampling in weapons testing
This thesis describes a Bayesian method to determine the number of samples needed to estimate a proportion or probability with 95% confidence when prior bounds are placed on that proportion. It uses the Uniform [a,b] ...
Discrete reliability growth.
Three methods for weighting an exponential regression model to estimate discrete reliability growth were derived and tested. The first method systematically applies greater weight to test phases whose estimates have ...
The effect of the covariance factor on the Procurement Problem Variance of net leadtime demand
An analysis is made of the formulae used by the Navy's Inventory Control Points in calculating the variance of Net Leadtime Demand of repairable items. A new formula is then derived, which makes use of actual calculations ...
A Markov model for measuring artillery fire support effectiveness
This thesis presents a Markov model, which, given an indirect fire weapon system's parameters, yields measures of the weapon's effectiveness in providing fire support to a maneuver element. These parameters may be determined ...
A comparison of the National Training Center and the JANUS (T) combat model battle results
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1988-09)
This thesis compares the weapon systems losses experienced at the National Training Center (NTC) with weapon systems losses in the high resolution combat model JANUS (TRASANA) for the Defend in Sector battle scenario at ...
Small sample properties of bootstrap
The Bootstrap method is a nonparametric statistical technique for estimating the sampling distribution of estimators of unknown parameters. While the asymptotic theory for bootstrap is well established, this thesis ...
An analysis of security background investigation data and the relationship with subsequent discharge
This thesis is concerned wit h the analysis of security investigation data extracted from the investigative files of 564 U.S. Navy first-term enlisted personnel who came on active duty between 1979 and 1982. The ...
An algorithm for generating ship schedules for a crisis deployment problem
A deployment is the movement of armed forces from their home bases to their strategic locations. The movement of these forces usually involves the transportation of military personnel as well as equipment and supplies. ...
Analysis of unit-level attrition in the United States Army Reserve.
This thesis investigates the influence of unit characteristics on unit-level manageable attrition and manageable losses suffered by USAR units. The objective is to determine whether there are differences in manageable ...
A column generation technique for a crisis deployment planning problem.
This study is concerned with the problem of constructing an optimal military deployment plan for sealift assets during a period of conflict. The deployment problem is formulated as a set-partitioning optimization problem ...
