Abstract : The report presents the results of a series of simulations using a basic set of priority assignment rules for sequencing items through a shop. It considers the specific case of an Air Force depot-level component repair shop that is pre-loaded with a quantity of workload to be produced during a fixed production period. The model used, the Workload and Repair Activity Process Simulator (WRAPS), is a network processor which simulates an environment defined by a network of tasks necessary to perform particular activities. Input data, representing demands, resource structure, and processing characteristics, was obtained from an actual operating repair shop. Since the model is appropriate for use in a range of studies concerning repair activity processes, a general description of it is included. (Author)
