Abstract
The tasks assigned to the Kingston class Maritime Coastal Defence Vessels (MCDV) have strained the existing crew and ship resources. A study by Benoit and Massel (2001) demonstrated that, on average, 95% of the available time-in-schedule was utilized, leaving little scheduling flexibility. The present study examined the policy of using multiple crews on the MCDV to determine if any scheduling improvements were possible. The results showed that multi-crewing is unlikely to yield gains in availability for at-sea tasking. The possible consequences of implementing the policy-on infrastructure, training requirements and crew cohesion-were also discussed. The methodology and analysis approach can be applied to other classes of ship.
