Abstract:

A Marine Amphibious Force MAF level Marine AirGround Task Force MAGTF will generate multiple, large-scale horizontal construction projects totaling thousands of cubic yards of earthwork. Even with Naval Construction Force NCF support, a landing force commander may be confronted with simultaneous critical earthwork requirements that would exceed the engineering capability of the MAF. A hypothetical earthwork construction case is defined by a set of limiting assumptions. Within the boundaries set by these assumptions, facility construction activity estimates are calculated and narrow networks are drafted. The Critical Path Method CPM is utilized to predict project earliest finish dates and resource allocation. The presented data networks, resource requirements, project durations, etc. will be of use to researchers and planners in the area of amphibious logistic support. Specific Initial Operating Capability dates for facilities will vary with operational requirements thus, a general discussion of the projection was substituted in lieu of specific conclusions of whether facility construction was in pace with tactical and operational requirements.
