Abstract : The report describes a simulation model developed by the Inventory Research Office of the Army Materiel Command. The model has been implemented as a FORTRAN program operating on the CDC 6500 Computer at Picatinny Arsenal. It was developed to validate decision rules proposed for inclusion in the Army's wholesale inventory control system to meet the requirements of DoDI 4140.39. The report is intended as an aid in understanding the results of these validation studies and as a guide to other researchers who might wish to borrow the computer program for the conduct of similar experiments with this model.
