The report describes a part of the effort to understand current warehousing and storage facilities of DoD in an attempt to project the likely outcome of future policy decisions. Automation and aggregation are key ideas. To assist in the study of these ideas this research was directed toward the formulation of a computer simulation of the warehousing facilities as they existed in 1970 and of the facilities of the near future as envisioned by the Task Group 5-70 Phase 2 report. The 1970 version was termed manual and the Phase 2 projection was termed automated. The simulation used Federal Stock Numbers FSN stocked as the measurement of facility size. An analysis of several operating parameters of the manual facility are made and compared to those same parameters of the automated facility of the same FSN level. Modified author abstract
