This thesis recommends ways to improve the content of the training curriculum and software usability of the Fleet Management System-Real Time (FMS-RT). The premise of this thesis is that the Navy should increase its performance during major overhauls and availabilities. According to experts, the current FMS-RT training program could be improved with the addition of three curriculum areas: project management training, advanced project management estimating techniques, and the more specific assignment of responsibilities in the implementation of the program. In addition, many problems and possible enhancements to the FMS-RT software were identified by our usability survey. Incorporating these changes to the training curriculum and software should allow the navy to increase ships force performance during overhauls.
