Abstract:

Management of the Navys Conventional Gun Ammunition System involves a logical progression of decisions regarding procurement, distribution, warehousing, maintenance, and consumption or disposal. The logisitical problems associated with this management are complicated by the efact that this ordnance has a limited shelf life and, primarily for physical security reasons, requires detailed end item visibility throughout its life cycle. This thesis reviews the ammunition management organization as it is designed to operate, then examines the actual operation of this system, highlighting problem areas that inhibit efficiency. Finally, improvements are suggested that should result in cost savings to the Navy.
