Abstract:

The paper describes a formulation of the problem that systems designers face in selecting a combination of holding tank and processor for shipboard sewage treatment systems. Two decision models are discussed within this framework. In one case the generation of sewage, aboard ships, is assumed to consist of deterministic arrival streams. In a second model, sewage generation is assumed to behave in accordance with a Poisson process. Allowances for maintenance and reliability are discussed. Author
