The purpose of this thesis is to examine the theoretical manner in which product, storage, and tanker characteristics affect bulk petroleum inventory costs at military installations. This is being done in order to develop a more scientific rather than intuitive understanding of the interactions and relative importance of the various variables which are involved. The problem will be approached from a mathematical standpoint by constructing a model with inventory cost, the variable of interest, expressed as a function of certain independent variables, some of which may be capable of management manipulation or control.
