In 1990 the Chief of Naval Operations approved the transfer of the MARS class combat logistics force ships to the Military Sealift Command (MSC). Because MSC ships are manned with predominantly civilian crews, the total personnel assigned decreased from approximately 446 to 175 (135 civilian mariners and 40 military), resulting in an annual savings of $9.8 million per ship transferred. In this thesis we analyze the advantages and disadvantages of the transfer of the ships in terms of personnel and equipment. In addition, we expand upon a previously written computer simulation model that analyzes the effects and results of the newly installed material handling system to include the addition of the ship's flight deck.
