The MK 92 Mod 2 Fire Control System (FCS) is a complex, maintenance intensive shipboard weapon system found primarily aboard the Oliver Hazard Perry class guided missile frigates (FFG-7). This system, based on 1970's technology, frequently requires extensive troubleshooting and supplemental support from shore-based technical experts. A maintenance advisor expert system (MAES) is being developed by the Port Hueneme Division of the Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC-PHD) and the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) to assist the Fire Control technicians aboard ship to better isolate faults in the MK 92 Mod 2 FCS. This thesis furthers the efforts of the project at NPS by investigating key implementation issues that will affect the deployment of the initial version of MAES to the fleet. Additional deployment issues addressed in the thesis include incorporating lessons learned from deploying other expert systems in the armed forces, gaining support from individual chains of command, training MAES users effectively, involving MAES users in the implementation process, and changing hardware implementation issues. A training plan, implementation plan, and updated MAES user's manual for the initial deployment are included.
