Abstract:

A prototype management information system called Work-in-Process Inventory Control System WIPICS has been installed at the Naval Air Rework Facility NARF, North Island. WIPICS is expected to benefit the NARF by reducing rework times and rework costs. By assuming that linear production processes may be estimated from statistical data accumulated by the NARF, a linear economic model is constructed which predicts a required budget in man-hours, material cost and overhead cost categories for a specified production output level. Sample problems are solved and parametric studies are done to determine changes in the required budget for restrictions in man-hours, material cost and overhead cost. The model will be used as an aid in the cost-effectiveness evaluation of WIPICS by the Management Systems Development Office. Author
