Abstract : The study forms one input to a continuing investigation by DoD agencies into the economy of warehouse modernization. Specifically, this study focuses on the 1980 time frame and attempts to describe a methodology for predicting the investment costs for an automated DoD storage facility. The facility design used is the one found in the Phase II Final Report of Task Group 5-70, the group established in 1971 to study modernization of DoD storage facilities. The study presents a computer model which calculates investment costs for the building and the equipment of the proposed facility. (Modified author abstract)
