Developmental tests have been conducted in the Fleet to demonstrate concepts for reducing man-hours required to perform certain shipboard functions while maintaining or improving effectiveness. Experiences during the preparation, conduct, and reporting of the tests are described including the CNO Pilot Program for Reduced Bridge Manning, Integrated Bridge Systems, Facilities Maintenance (housekeeping), Wireless Comunications During Damage Control Evolutions, and the Ship Controlman. Areas discussed include: system design and interface requirments; elements that go into test designed for shipboard evaluation; approval requirements to conduct such tests; how to get Fleet Support in terms of personnel and assets; logistics and training requirements; and finally, what Fleet testing buys that other means do not.
