Abstract : Improved inventory management control can be achieved through proper understanding of the numerous parameters available in the SUADPS-207 (Shipboard Uniform Automated Data Processing System) DI 073 (Demand Processing/Levels Computation) program. This study measures the impact these parameters have on workload, requisition effectiveness, and average inventory investment. A computer simulation model was utilized in conducting the study using the historical demand data taken from the inventories of USS SPERRY (AS 12), USS DIXON (AS 37) and USS PROTEUS (AS 19). The results of the study show that inventory investment requirements can be reduced, with minor impact on effectiveness or workload, through the careful setting of certain parameters. (Author)
