Abstract : The purpose of this thesis is to determine the actual time measurements associated with the various steps of the Advanced Traceability and Control (ATAC) process to evaluate significant policy decisions such as the Defense Management Review Decision (DMRD) 901's ship or hold decision. As the first step, a review of the operation of ATAC is presented. Additionally the ATAC Plus program, which represents the future of Navy carcass management, is described. Next, the data base maintained by Navy Material Transportation Office (NAVMTO) is analyzed and the results are presented. Further research is recommended to develop an elaborate simulation model to allow the development of a comprehensive processing policy for each repairable item.
