Abstract : The problem of how to store as much as possible of a required munitions inventory in a given storage area is addressed by the formulation of a mixed integer linear programming model that will calculate optimal storage subject to a complex set of constraints. The Munitions Storage Optimization System (MSOS) provides a capability for setting up munitions storage optimization linear programming problems. MSOS allows the user to create data bases containing the required information for the munitions inventory items and the storage buildings. Munitions inventory is entered by stock number, number of lots, and number of packages for each lot. A program extracts the necessary information from the data bases, formulates the objective function and constraint equations, then submits the problem to a mixed integer linear programming package for calculation of the solution.
