Project Outcomes

Final Report


The objective of this project was to standardize the way risk reduction is measured during marine vessel inspections, based on the deficiencies found on each vessel by the Coast Guard. Over the course of the project, we researched past performance measure models, in addition to working closely with the MISLE database and Coast Guard personnel to determine which factors should be included in our analysis. We then created a prototype model, based on the vessel data from the past decade, for automatically assigning risk-reduction values to various deficiencies.
