Optimal Allocation of Selected T-Series Advanced Base Functional Component Equipment Packages
NAVAL POSTGRADUATE SCHOOL MONTEREY CA
Pagination or Media Count:
Advanced Base Functional Components ABFCs are pre-planned modular units of equipment and personnel designed to extend or create the logistic infrastructure required to support naval expeditionary operations. The ABFC program is structured to combine trained personnel with the equipment needed to perform a particular logistic mission such as seaport operations and cargo handling, warehousing, or freight terminal operations. If the ABFC must deploy to a theater of operations, individual equipment packages containing material handling equipment andor civil engineering support equipment CESE vehicles tailored to the operational situation are required. This thesis presents an optimization model that determines the minimum number and type of ABFC equipment packages required for the land-based naval logistic requirements of several hypothetical scenarios, some of which illustrate dual major theater war scenarios. The model quickly and efficiently provides the user with the minimum required number of material handling equipment and CESE vehicles for selected T-series ABFCs.
