The purpose of this thesis is to determine if the NWP 4-01.2 or the current "On Station" planning factors within RASP provide adequate estimates of fuel consumption within FIFTHFLT for seven classes of naval warships, or would fleet planners be better served with our newly computed "GeoRegion" planning factors. The analysis concludes the NWP and the "On Station" planning factors overestimate actual fuel consumption within the FIFTHFLT AOR. The "GeoRegion" planning factors proved to be more efficient and provided a more effective optimization of RAS deliveries. There were fewer RAS events using the new planning factors, reducing JP5 hits from 50 to 45 and DFM hits from 50 to 43. There was also a substantial decrease in the number of 4-hour periods the warships spent below 50% fuel capacity.
