Abstract:

To study the logistical impact of using convenience food products in Navy food service systems, the Convenience Food Logistics Model CFLM was developed as a management tool to perform such evaluations. The CFLM is primarily an optimization tool which takes food cost, labor and storage data from databases built into the system, a menu consisting of Armed Forces Recipe Service recipe items, and user supplies substitution percentages for various recipe categories to generate an optimal substituted menu. The objective of this report is to familiarize the user with the CFLM and provide information necessary for effectively using system features and functions. This is one of four reports related to this effort. The others are Convenience Food Logistics Model - Design, Miller, J. and Evangelos, K., NATICKTR-96016 Logistical Analysis of Convenience Food Substitution in a Typical Navy Menu for a Wasp Class Amphibious Assault Ship LHD, Saraf, S., Ph.D., Evangelos, K. and Hill, B., NATICKTR-96018 and Analysis of the Impact of Convenience Foods on Navy Food Service, Evangelos, K., Adams, S., Dr.P.H., RD, Short, P. et al., NATICKTR-96019.
