The workings of the U. S. Coast Guard aids to navigation maintenance system is described. Emphasis is placed upon the operation of the buoy tender class cutter to maintain buoys and minor aids. Based on the realization that the Coast Guard exists to serve more than one operational function and that these functions at times compete for the resources made available to the Service, the assumption is made that the Coast Guard needs a method to measure present accomplishment of its aids to navigation functions and a way to test proposed changes before they are adopted. This paper accepts the Monte Carlo simulation technique and attempts to construct a conceptual, model of the operations of a Coast Guard District to maintain a system of aids to navigation with variable responsibilities for search and rescue, logistics, and ice breaking duties.
