Reduction of total ownership cost by Michael W Boudreau( )

4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Total Ownership Cost (TOC) is the current initiative to manage costs over the entire life cycle of a weapon system. There are several major categories of costs that contribute to Total Ownership Cost but the principal categories are (1) R & D, (2) Production, (3) Operating and Support, and (4) Disposal. System TOC is the same as Life Cycle Cost (LCC) and has implications for Cost As an Independent Variable (CAIV), cost-performance tradeoffs, affordability, and cost to achieve required operational availability. The Program Manager (PM) is responsible for developing and managing system TOC, with input from key stakeholders, such as the sponsor and users. This paper addresses incentives that can be employed to encourage life cycle cost perspective. It examines the critical issues associated with understanding and implementing the TOC concept and provides recommendations to assist PMs to knowledgeably execute a TOC plan. Metrics necessary to ensure appropriate implementation are explored. Various methods of controlling and reducing TOC are evaluated, including communication among stakeholders, CAIV documentation, tradeoff analysis, Reliability-Centered Maintenance (RCM); Performance-Based Logistics (PBL), Commercial Operations & Support Savings Initiative (COSSI), Earned Value Management System (EVMS), Activity-Based Costing (ABC), Value Engineering, and lessons from R-TOC Pilots

Psychiatric screening for the submarine service : enlisted personnel by C. L Schlichting( )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A brief overview of 25 years of psychiatric screening of enlisted personnel for submarine service in the United States Navy is presented. Current screening consists of administration of a submarine specific test, Subscreen, to all prospective Basic Enlisted Submarine School (BESS) candidates. Figures from 1991 and 1992 show that approximately 9.7% of these candidates are referred for more extensive testing at the Psychiatry Department of the Naval Hospital Groton. Less that two percent of all candidates are subsequently dropped from Bess. Two measures of test performance, sensitivity (the ability of a test to yield a positive finding when the individual tested actually has the condition being tested for) and specificity (the ability of a test to yield a negative finding when the individual tested does not have the condition) were studied. Both sensitivity (75%) and specificity (92%) were very good for Subscreen, especially compared to a test the USAF administers for similar purposes. Although some small changes will improve test performance, in general, Subscreen remains an effective tool for screening for Submarine Service
Characterizing noise fields in shipboard spaces by Robert J Sylvester( )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Three methods of characterizing discrete tone sound fields were tested in a reverberant compartment. Method one uses sound field mapping, method two implements an integrating sound level meter, and method three uses personal noise dosimetry. Sound field mapping resulted in a detailed and accurate visual representation of the sound field, but because the procedure is both complicated and time consuming, it is not appropriate for day-today analysis of compartments. The dosimetry measurements were erratic and did not compare well with the sound field mapping measurements. The dosimeters were influenced by the extraneous noise produced by the activities of the test subjects wearing the dosimeters. Consequently, personal noise dosimetry cannot be considered a reliable method for characterizing sound fields for the conditions of this test. An integrating sound level meter combines the accuracy of the sound field maps with the simplicity of operation of the personal noise dosimeters. A single number was attainable that was representative of the noise hazard associated with discrete tones in reverberant compartments.

Evaluation of communication during active sonar transmissions with a speech-recognition model by Lynne Marshall( )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Predictions using the Speech Intelligibility Index (SII) are reported for speech recognition in tonal and broadband noise. Three levels of background pink noise (60, 65, and 70 dBA) were used for the SII. Tones in the frequency range around 1000 Hz at 77, 83, and 89 dB SPL were added to the background pink noise. The speech spectra were for four different vocal efforts (normal, raised, loud, and shouted). The simulated listeners for most of the predictions were assumed to have normal hearing. A hearing loss was also included for a subset of predictions. If 'barely adequate' speech recognition is used as a criterion, the effects of the background noise can be overcome by increasing the vocal effort of the speaker, often to a shout.

Compressive strength of ship hull girders by H Becker( Book )

3 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Part III examines a phenomenological theory has been developed for predicting the ultimate strength of rectangular structural plates loaded in uniaxial longitudinal compression, uniaxial transverse compression and biaxial compression. The effects of normal pressure also were considered. The theory was found to be in reasonable agreement with experimental data. Certain areas of the theory and some of the experiments require additional study. The longitudinal compression theory was found to agree well with corresponding theories of other investigators. Other results of broad interest are the demonstration of the applicability of a biaxial plasticity law to biaxial strength theory and the delineation of a method for selecting an optimum material for compression strength. The use of stress-strain curves for strain analysis of critical and ultimate strengths is described. They were employed to construct theoretical strength curves. Theoretical relations and corresponding curves have been developed for perfect plates. The effects of strength degrading factors are discussed and the analysis of residual stress effects is included
