Abstract : A methodology for designing large multiunit, multipurpose systems is developed. This method provides the means for identifying the correct problem objective, the alternative that will best satisfy this objective, and the means for determining the characteristics of this alternative so that it will satisfy the problem's objective in the fullest degree. This methodology is then applied to the problem of Underway Ship Replenishment, and the analysis is carried through until the alternative that will provide the most effective replenishments is identified.
