Abstract : This paper presents a dictionary wherein each 'line element' in the U. S. Navy Board of Inspection and Survey (INSURV) inspection report is related to specific 'systems' of the Equipment Identification Code (EIC) catalog. The approach is to list, for each INSURV line element, all EIC systems that pertain to entities inspected in order to assign a grade to the line element. There are 609 line elements but only 245 are appropriate as entries in the dictionary. Since we limit our attention to the DD type of ship, only 21 of the 27 EIC system codes need be considered. Our objective is to clarify the nature of the problem of relating INSURV inspection data and data such as those from the Maintenance Data Collection System where EIC codes are used. In addition to this clarification, the present dictionary will form the basis for the next study wherein INSURV line elements will be related to EIC 'subsystems.' (Author)
