This thesis examines the change in maintenance strategy of the LPH 2 class from the Regular Overhaul strategy to the Phased Maintenance strategy to determine if a cost savings has been achieved. Additionally, readiness was examined through the use of operational availability data and C3/C4 casualty report data to determine the impact of the change in maintenance strategy on readiness. The results of the analysis indicate that with the change in maintenance strategy, a significant cost savings was realized by the Navy. In addition, the research indicated that by both readiness measurements chosen, an improvement in readiness had occurred
