This thesis studies the inventory accuracy in nonmechanized warehouses under the NISTARS automated warehousing system. This thesis is designed to answer two questions. Is there a significant difference between the NISTARS non-mechanized warehouses and the other types of warehouses? What are the reasons for the difference if one exists? The data were extracted from the official inventory reports of the Naval Supply Center, San Diego, CA. To ensure the data were representative of the inventory position of all warehouses under the control of the supply center, they were taken from the NAVSUP required quarterly STATMAN random sampled inventories. The study indicates that there is a significant difference (13% less) in the inventory accuracy in non-mechanized warehouses under NISTARS control. Also, that the research codes used in the inventory reports are not effective. Additionally, the data output from the inventory reports is not fully used to improve the system.
