There is an obvious need for performance measurement in U. S. Navy commands. Not only are performance metrics, or measurements, essential to tracking progress toward strategic goals, but as a publicly funded entity and holder of the public trust, the Navy has an obligation to efficiently and effectively use those public funds. Performance metrics are the guideposts to achieving efficiency and effectiveness. This thesis was designed to aid the Program Executive Office for Integrated Warfare Systems, a Navy Echelon III acquisition command, with a performance measurement project, deriving metrics for two of its seven major programs, IWS 1.0 and 2.0. Performance drivers were captured through interviews with key leaders in those two major programs. Those interviews were transformed into causal performance maps which depicted the interplay of the drivers and the outcomes they influenced. Performance metrics were then derived for those drivers and outcomes and arranged in a balanced scorecard format. The scorecards will hopefully be useful to the major program managers in monitoring the progress of their organizations toward achieving strategic success. Additionally, the metrics should enhance understanding of strategic direction by the rank and file of IWS 1.0 and 2.0.

CIVINS / The Non-Intrusive Load Monitor (NILM) is a device that utilizes voltage and current measurements to determine the operating schedule of all of the major loads on an electrical service. Additionally, the NILM can use its electrical measurements to diagnose impending failures in the mechanical systems that are actuated by the electric loads. Ongoing NILM research conducted at Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Laboratory for Electromagnetic and Electronic Systems (LEES) is exploring the application of NILM technology in shipboard environments. For the current shipboard applications, diagnostic software development is in progress. To aid in that process, research was done to understand the dynamics of a shipboard cycling system. This thesis presents an in-depth examination of the development of diagnostic indicators for a shipboard vacuum assisted waste disposal system. Measurements and experimentation were conducted onboard USCGC SENECA (WMEC-906), a 270-foot Coast Guard Cutter. In order to better understand the system dynamics, a computer based model was developed to simulate the system. The intent of creating an in-depth model was to develop diagnostic methods that are applicable to any shipboard cycling systems. First, a base model is designed followed by the exploration of a realistic model that includes variation commonly found in the system. Thirdly, a diagnostics section explores methods to detect increased pump operation and distinguish between high system usage and the presence of a leak. Lastly, a basic cost analysis is done on the sewage system to show the benefits of installing a NILM. / CIVINS / US Navy (USN) author.
