This simulation is a versatile SIMSCRIPT program designed to determine transportation destination fluctuations caused by U.S. Naval vessel movements in the San Francisco Bay area. The through-put model was designed to investigate the relationship between the annual number of delivery trips and the average material delivery delay. Numerous parameters have been taken into consideration in the generation of a model that is as realistic as possible. Requirement priority, item quantity, customer movement, ultimate destination, and process time are the significant random variables which have been assigned probabilistic distributions. In view of the simulation results, it would appear that actual modification of the current shipping parameters may yield substantial transportation savings.
