Abstract : The Commandant of the Coast Guard recently expressed concern over the inadequate support of uniform items to Coastguardsmen. This thesis is in response to this concern and proposes a periodic inventory model which can be expected to provide effective inventory management of clothing facilities. The proposed model offers improvements in forecasting demand and by increasing customer satisfaction through increased service levels. The proposed inventory control model has been developed in two parts, one for forecasting recruit demands and the other for saled demands. While the first part of the inventory model is only applicable at the Cape May Training Center, the second can be used throughout the Coast Guard and is offered as a partial solution to the uniform support problems.
