Abstract : This study contains the analysis of the costs associated with the printing operation of the messages received from the Naval Communications Fleet Multi-Channel Broadcast System by a ship equipped with the Multiplex General Address Reading Device (GARD). A computer simulation is used to compare the average message delays for three different models of printers in varying quantities. Messages are accounted for by all four precedences. Costs of message delay and initial purchase price are used to compare the alternatives. The results of the study show that two high speed printers such as the TT-624 is the optimal configuration.
