The purpose of this research is to develop a comprehensive understanding of vehicle pools, how the number of vehicles authorized is determined, and how Commander Naval Installations Command (CNIC) manages assets through Transportation Reviews of Inventory Objectives (TRIOs). The specific objective of the proposed research project is developing an optimization model of official vehicles, specifically for B pool, that can aid Commander Fleet Activities Sasebo. In this study, data is collected from Public Works Sasebo, Japan, and is intended to provide a continuation project for research conducted at additional Far East locations. The current study confirms the findings of previous analysis done in house at Sasebo while at the same time offering different options on vehicle pool make-up. The study additionally provides a working optimization model for PWO Sasebo to use in future analyses.
