Based on profitability indexes the ship increased on 5 profitability such as labor 115%, capital 123%, energy 102%, other inputs 103%, and total 101%. During the measurement period, there were productivity fluctuations on the ship, caused by inefficiencies such as overtime and increased input. In these situations, strategies for the ship developed. The suitable strategy development on Grand Strategy Matrix for the ship was SO Strategies. The suitable strategy development on IE Matrix was Hold and Maintain.
