This MBA project report focuses on the development of a spreadsheet model of a finite population queue to replicate the Armored Brigade Combat Team (ABCT) equipment modernization process. The purpose of this report is to assess the sensitivity of several key determinants of equipment modernization cycle time for policy recommendations. This analysis utilized a published spreadsheet formulation of a finite population, multi-server machine interference problem as the basis for the design of the spreadsheet model that supports the findings of this report. Key modifications to the model include the implementation of customer balking and reneging in the queueing system.
