Abstract : An analysis is presented of the costs incurred in operating the local delivery system at the Naval Supply Center, San Diego. Specifically, the analysis identifies costs charged to the Navy Management Fund and examines management control procedures being used to monitor the delivery system. A procedure is devised to prorate the costs of Navy and commercial trucks into a standard cost that can be applied to a time standard established for each local delivery route. The findings of this report suggest areas where improvements could be made in the existing system. Only after such improvements are made would some type of vehicle scheduling algorithm possibly be of benefit. (Author)
