"During four rounds of base realignment and closure (BRAC), the United States Army reduced its military infrastructure to meet its future national security and military requirements. After each round's closures and realignments were approved, all necessary actions (excluding some environmental cleanup) had to be scheduled over six years. The United State Army used an integer linear program, BRACAS (Base Realignment and Closure Action Schedule), to help guide the implementation of the 1995 round's actions. BRACAS schedules closure and realignment actions, and maximizes the net present value NPV of total cost savings while adhering to an annual budget and other constraints. This thesis updates BRACAS. Its main contribution is a more realistic inclusion of environmental cleanup costs. Using data based on the Army's 1995 round and letting BRACAS pick its yearly (1996-2001) budget, the refined BRACAS finds a 20-year NPV of $6 ,346 million. We examine how closures and the 20-year NPV are changed for several scenarios where we restrict yearly budgets and alter the inclusion of environmental cleanup costs."--p. i.
