Abstract
A simplified model of the Navy's underway replenishment operation is investigated by using a multi- stage cyclic queue ing model to ap= proximate the process. A computer simulation of a more realistic model is performed to generate data which is compared with the cyclic queue results. The cases for M = 2 and N = 10, 15, 20 with various service rates are considered, where M is the number of ships in the underway replenishment group, and N is the size of the combatant force being replenished.
