Abstract : The Defense Logistics Agency Supply Operations Directorate, Transportation Division (DLA-OT), wishes to measure the depots' efficiency in consolidating Issue Priority Group (IPG) III items into freight shipments. This project investigated the consolidation system of IPG III materiel release orders (MROs) and the need to measure it at each depot with a single index. The report describes the process used to build an 'efficiency index' to measure depot consolidation of IPG III MROs. Specifically, it details the selection of the factors used to construct the index, examines the behavior of each factor, describes the process used to develop a weighting scheme, and gives detailed instructions for computation of the actual index.
