dc.description.abstractThe Navy's Surface Opportune Lift (OPLIFT) program is a Navy Material Transportation Office-managed cost reduction program. The program makes use of deploying and returning U.S. Navy ships to move fleet and shore material. The transportation cost avoided or saved would otherwise be billed to Servicewide Transportation funds.. This thesis is an analysis of the OPLIFT program with an emphasis on the cost savings achieved over the past five years. In order to determine if maximum cost savings are being achieved an examination of top management emphasis on OPLIFT utilization, fleet implementation of the program and the existing cost savings reporting system is conducted. In addition, trends and patterns in OPLIFT utilization are identified and a multiple regression model to predict monthly cost savings is developed. An attempt is made to identify measures which can be taken to upgrade and improve the program and enable the Navy to maximize cost savings.en_US
