Abstract:

The study was conducted to discover the upper bound on the capability of the system. This allowed the assumptions of good weather, a 20,000 ton tanker cargo in danger of spill in a location where ADAPTS can be delivered, and no machinery or material failures. An adverse condition in any one of these basic assumptions reveals the lower bound of the problem no bags filled. The actual results will lie between these bounds. For a given set of resources and distances, the manager can determine the upper bound with the model and from that and the extent to which the assumptions are violated he can estimate the actual capability of the system in any given instance.
