Abstract : The planning for an underway at sea replenishment operation is treated as a special case of the job scheduling problem. Given the service times of the ships to be replenished, general expressions are obtained for total time to complete the operation and total waiting time of the ships involved. Methods to minimize these expressions are developed for several specific cases. Although the largest size of operation considered in this paper is that of three supply ships and three ships to be replenished, the methods developed are believed to be extendable to larger operations.
