Abstract : The complex nature of the base reception process, combined with the variability of processing requirements, arrival times, and departure times, make planning for the mobilization and deployment of U.S. forces difficult to accurately accomplish. This thesis developed a management tool applicable to all APOE bases to create and evaluate reception plans. The computerized model was fully validated and then used to determine adequate resource levels to achieve on-time preparation of deploying assets. The simulation results were analyzed statistically to ensure resource optimization. Actual warplan data were used in Volume II to generate resource levels required to support the OPLAN. (Author)
