Abstract:

Naval Supply System throughput time is modeled by defining a set of elements which comprise the system, documenting the requisition or materials flows among these elements, and applying concepts of queueing theory to each possible path through the system. It was found that the larger proportion of throughput time was related to waiting periods rather than active periods in a requisitions history. These waits were related to queues arising from service time - arrival time relationships, administrative procedures and practices, multi-priority servicing batching, and administered backlogs.
