Abstract : This thesis explores how the number of operating access control points (ACPs) and their configuration of lanes and staffing affect vehicular flow into Naval Base San Diego (NBSD). We examine this flow during normal and nonnormal operations, such as heightened force protection conditions. The research focuses on factors that affect throughput as well as the management of costs associated with different staffing configurations. These factors include force protection condition, vehicle type, number of passengers in the vehicle, and type of credentials presented. We study the importance of these factors using statistical techniques to analyze the data collected during site visits to NBSD. We also formulate and analyze queuing models of the ACPs to capture the impact of staffing configurations at the ACPs. The analysis provides insight into how best to increase, or maintain, the throughput with current configurations and requirements. The data collected and analyzed in this thesis provide a solid foundation for future research and can easily be adapted to other Department of Defense installations where similar congestion is prevalent.
