Abstract:

Network theory and the theory of queues under several servicing priorities are combined in a mathematical simulation of requisition processing. Data describing requisition processing at NSC Norfolk and the Ships Parts Control Center are presented. Throughput time distributions which are observed are compared to throughput time distributions predicted by the simulation model. Generally, the model failed to explain requisition waiting times due to backlogs.
