Abstract
This thesis examines the use of a simulation model as a method Industrial Operations Command, U.S. Army, can use to assess container operations at its eleven munitions depots. The model, called AmmoBox, is tailored to depot container procedures and equipment resource constralnts. It provides data on daily container output, and container processing time. Hawthorne Army Depot is used to illustrate the process. The model approximates the depot's container capability, and the simulation results assist to determine the equipment augmentation needed to meet depot mobilization goals. Container enhancement projects are also evaluated with AmmoBox. The model-generated data reflect the impact of changes to depot procedures and infrastructure. These data on daily container output and container processing time are recommended for use in a more detailed decision support system for funding and prioritization of depot projects.
