Abstract : This thesis compares military, commercial, and international quality assurance standards and uses the framework of Dr. W. Edwards Deming's philosophy of management to evaluate and set appropriate quality assurance standards the Hellenic Navy should include in contracts with commercial contractors for 1200 psi steam boiler maintenance. The Hellenic Navy could experience long term benefits by implementing ISO 9002 quality assurance standards in all production and service contracts. (MM)
