Abstract:

A digital computer simulation program is developed using GASP II simulation language to study the size of repair crew to be used with the Small Caliber Ammunition Modernization Program SCAMP. The system simulated is an array of twenty five automated machines. The repair personnel for the system are drawn from a variable sized repair pool composed of three categories of repairmen electrical, mechanical, and a general category called other. Using multiple simulation runs, the behavior of the system is observed for different compositions of the repair pool. Various statistics for the system are presented as routine program output. The results of the simulation runs are compared with proposed manpower requirements.
