Abstract:

Presently there is no standard method of forecasting over-ocean cargo requirements within the Army. An operational analysis identified the important elements of the forecast. The agencies most suited to do the various aspects of the forecast and the data they could best be using to make the forecast are proposed. The forecasts are broken down into major, special and residue cargo forecasts and the latest information is combined with past history by use of the Kalman forecasting algorithm developed in previous work.
