USER MANUAL FOR THE MARAD FLEET OPERATIONS SIMULATION. VOLUME 1. GENERAL DESCRIPTION

The MarAd Fleet Operations Simulation is a tool for studying the influence of ship design characteristics, voyage itineraries and schedules, cargo availability and handling characteristics, and a host of similar elements on the operating and financial performance of a fleet of ships operating on one or more services. The purposes of this User Manual are: (1) To provide information concerning the manner in which the simulation operates, so that potential users can evaluate the applicability and potential value of employing this tool for their individual purposes. (2) To specify the preparation necessary before specific simulation runs can be made. (3) To present detailed descriptions of the simulation operation which will permit users to employ the Simulation Program effectively. These three overlapping objectives are met by providing a series of successively more detailed descriptions of the simulation, its input requirements, and its built-in logic and decision-making mechanisms.
