Abstract:

The purpose of the study is to determine if supply support can be improved by employing alternative methods of selecting consignors to satisfy requisitions passed to or originating at Navy ICPs Inventory Control Points. A simulation model was designed to approximate the current UICP Uniform Automatic Data Processing System for ICPs rules for selecting consignors. The model was run on a 1,646 item random sample of data obtained from SPCC Navy Ships Parts Control Center, using the current rules and proposed alternative rules. The evaluation of the results is in terms of transportation time and costs, supply support effectiveness, and the rate of ICP referrals returned by stock points bounceback rate. The results indicate that supply response time, transportation costs and bounceback rates are not changed appreciably by the alternatives simulated. Author
