The issue of early deliveries and their consequences for the Navy are new concepts which depart rather significantly from customary government thinking, where late delivery is the primary concern. The government normally accepts supplies when they are delivered, even if earlier than required. This thesis investigated whether or not early deliveries do in fact occur, and if so, whether they are a significant problem for the government.
