Abstract : The general-purpose simulator TRANSIM is used to study shipyard problems in the issue of tools to workers engaged in overhaul of a carrier at a Naval Shipyard. The present system, tool issue from off-ship toolrooms, is compared with proposed systems using portable auxiliary toolrooms installed aboard the ship. Two alternate locations for auxiliary toolrooms are tested in various combinations with the presently installed pierside toolrooms. A model of the present system is constructed, and extended to include the proposed alternate systems. The systems are compared using Monte Carlo techniques, at two levels of population and at three levels of auxiliary toolroom capacity. Additional refinements are recommended, and uses of the TRANSIM method in extensions of the problem are indicated.
