Abstract:

By analyzing several different combinations of replenishment vessels and combatant ships, it is demonstrated through goodness-of-fit tests that gamma distributions whose parameters can be estimated from actual operational data are reliable estimates of the actual underlying CONREP service time distributions. Furthermore, it is shown that the distribution can be made Erlang by minor adjustments to the parameter estimates of the gamma distribution. Such a procedure might be desirable for analytical models employing Laplace transforms. The data is subjected to linear regression techniques in an effort to develop meaningful and accurate functional relationships between service time and customer needs. Author
