Abstract : The operator's manual, programmer's manual, and computer routines for the Depot Repair and Overhaul Simulator (DR and O), the final of four simulation programs that are components of the Planned Logistics Analysis and Evaluation Technique (PLANET). DR and O is designed to examine the functions normally performed by a depot in converting a reparable to a serviceable. The simulator takes as inputs the depot's operating characteristics, such as the workshift policies, the expected workload through time, and a planned set of resources to operate the depot. It then simulates the depot's operation through time and periodically prints out reports that reflect the performance of the planned set of resources under the conditions specified. Performance is measured in terms of reparable throughput time in relation to the depot's capacity. The outputs can be used as an aid in determining the resource requirements to support the depot's operation. The four simulation programs that make up PLANET can be used separately to examine specific areas of the logistic system, or together to simulate the complete weapon system operation from the site or point of demand through the depot level.
