Abstract : Destroyer (DD) operating intensity, as measured by time underway and fuel consumed underway, was compared with maintenance man-hour comsumption at the organizational and intermediate level, in man-hours/month. No correlations were found between either measure of intensity and maintenance expenditures. Wide variations in both time underway (none to the complete month) and maintenance man-hour consumption (none to over 7,000 man-hours per month) were found on a month-to-month basis; however, long-term averages time between overhauls) showed smaller variations in time underway (to about 400 hours/month) and maintenance man-hour consumption (500 to about 2,200 man-hours/month). The data consisted of the records of 171 DDs from April 1966 through March 1969. (Author)
