This thesis develops a quantitative process for determining if the changes being made to the combat/weapon systems during a maintenance availability are significant and the risk those changes pose to the readiness of the ship. The purpose of this process is to assist decision-makers in determining if a ship should conduct Combat Systems Ship Qualification Trials (CSSQT) post-availability. The process uses warfare area criticality and type of change to determine the significance of the change. Risk is assessed by determining the likelihood the changes will impact maintenance readiness, operational readiness and safety. The final result of the process is a matrix that uses the significance and risk likelihood values to graphically represent the overall impact the availability has on the ship. Where a ship is plotted on the matrix will determine the recommendation for that ship.
