COST EFFECTIVENESS STUDY OF WASTEWATER MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS FOR SELECTED U.S. COAST GUARD VESSELS. VOLUME II. EFFECTIVENESS ASSESSMENT OF CANDIDATE SYSTEMS

A generalized and systematic effectiveness assessment methodology, including a computer program for quantifying the effectiveness of candidate system vessel combinations was developed. The methodology is described and guidelines for its use are presented. The results of applying this effectiveness assessment methodology to the 18 Wastewater Management System (WMS) concepts in configurations suitable for each of the six vessels included in this study are presented. The effectiveness model used is based on the following seven measures of effectiveness: Adaptability for Shipboard Installation, Performance, Operability, Personnel Safety, Habitability, Reliability, and Maintainability. Each effectiveness measure was successively broken down into constituent factors and subfactors, resulting in 111 individual criteria which were used as the basis for quantifying the effectiveness of each viable candidate system on each vessel. The effectiveness attribute data used are also presented. (Author)
