By combining accurate real time data collection, statistical process control (SPC) methods, and a reliable simulation program, system engineers and Naval logisticians will be better able to realize real savings in monetary terms, increased Operational Availability and decreased mission time. This study concentrates on one weapon system, the 5 sec 54 MK 45 gun system. We developed a real time data collection program that is currently being used by Comarco Engineering Support Division to collect data from naval gunfire support missions. SPC methods are then used to identify deficiencies with specific blocks of the gun system. By having a reliable simulation of the weapon system, like the one written at NPS for the 5 sec 54 MK 45, the program manager is better able to evaluate the various alternatives of spending the programs money, e.g., increase the reliability of a component or reduce the repair time. This way he is better able to spend the programs money more effectively in order to improve the readiness of the weapon system and the U. S. Navy
