The ROKN is engaged in anti-infiltration operations which call for unlimited time of ships underway. The operation will continue until our political situation improves to the level of the two Germanies. Korean military forces have a primary mission which is obviously military readiness and our vulnerability to North Korean special forces infiltrations places a high priority on anti-infiltration operations. This situation generates high pressure on the ROK military forces. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to develop an optimum organizational structure which will give flexibility in dealing with those two conflicting missions. Primary research data exists in the experiences of the other Navies which gives basic impetus to this study. Fortunately, the USCG has partially implemented a multicrew system. The mission and constraints of the USCG share of the USCG share similarities with the ROKN and the ROKCG. Those two Korean services try to achieve organizational effectiveness through optimization of given resources. For the additional mission, increasing time of the ships underway is a primary concern which can be accomplished by redesigning the organizational structure. In this thesis, comparisons between various manning models are studied. Secondly, barriers in implementing change in other services are identified, especially the ROKN. Thirdly, appropriate approaches to overcome the common barriers are proposed. Ultimately, a structural design is selected which best matches the organizational environment of the Korean Navy as a fast patrol force.
