Abstract : This thesis represents the results of a study of the U. S. Naval Processing and Routing System (NAVCOMPARS). The system's development from preconception to present is described herein as well as a description of its hardware and software components. Additionally, the Local Digital Message Exchange (LDMX), is likewise described. The purpose of this thesis is to identify bottlenecks in message flow through NAVCOMPARS5 In this attempt, the system was simulated in a functional manner by computer and various input distributions were applied. By so doing, the factors, events and situations contributing to bottlenecks in message processing are identified as fully as possible within the constraints of time and information availability.
