|Summary||In 2006, the U.S. Navy introduced its newest class of underway replenishment ships, the T-AKE, to replace the aging combat stores and ammunition ships. The T-AKE is designed to deliver ammunition, stores, and fuel to carrier and expeditionary strike groups. This research will use simulation to run experiments on the capabilities of re-supplying T-AKE's in Guan during a military contingency. The research will support the Navy by conducting systems analysis of a major supply mode of Asian Pacific theater operations. The objective is to facilitate evaluation of systems, identify improvements to fully exploit capabilities, and gain insights into the process methodology. In addition to the above, this research intends to provide recommendations for resource allocation and system flow path changes. In addition, a model that can be utilized in future analysis as a template for any given port will be developed.|
