Abstract:

By memorandum dated 2 August 1985, the Depot Operations Division DLA-OW requested an analysis of the Direct Commissary Support System DICOMSS shipments through the Defense Depot Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania DDMP. An economic analysis estimated that the DICOMSS warehousing opertions could be modernized with an investment of approximately 8 million. The Defense Logistics Agency Mechanization Support Office DMESCO was requested to assist DDMP with the design of the modernized facilities. The purpose of this study was to assist DMECSO in designing facilities by providing them with receiving and shipping workload data. The objectives were to track current workload to analyze that data and to provide the data in a format appropriate for design requirements. The study was limited to DICOMSS purchase orders going through Mechanicsburg. Federal Supply Class 8975, Tobacco Products, were excluded from statistics in this report since this material will not be stored in the modernized warehouses. The time period of the data is from 10 September through 25 February 1986. This provided 12 material release order cycles to analyze.
