A LABOR SAVING AND MORE EFFICIENT METHOD OF DAILY ANALYSIS OF ENGINEERING PERFORMANCE
By Lieutenant Commander W. L. Moore, U. S. Navy
The need for some form of daily analysis of the performance of the engineering plant of a ship is well recognized, but the use of such an analysis is not so universal as it should be.
Among the reasons for this condition, the following three (3) may be counted as probably the most important
(a) Lack of necessary data.
(b) Time and labor required to pick off the data from performance curves.
(c) Lack of understanding of the use and value of the analysis after the form given in the Rules for Engineering Performances.
