The effect of funding scheme on the performance of Navy repair activities
Dearey, William M.
MetadataShow full item record
Navy repair activities are social and political as well as financial and technical systems. As systems, their architecture has a controlling effect on their behavior. One factor that works throughout the architecture is the particular funding scheme and the rules, both written and cultural, that any particular scheme brings with it. This paper examines the interaction of funding scheme, as a rules-based force, with the changing architectures of Navy repair activities to try to determine the effect of the funding scheme on the performance of that architecture. It shows that changes to the architecture of the ship maintenance system in the Northwest region have worked together with a conversion of the funding scheme to Mission Funding to improve the decisions that are made within that architecture.
