Abstract

This report describes the major steps used in the Army’s LSS methodology, provides a brief overview of the Unaccompanied Personnel Housing and the Army Family Housing and briefly describes some of the initial steps intended to start improving the process. In the improvement phase, two detailed models (The EOQ Model and the Hadley and Whitin (Q,r) Model) used for inventory management are discussed. This report also provides a series of recommendations that include suggestions for baseline inventory levels, some ideas for future data collection, example improvements to some data input sheets as well as a few tasks for UPH and AFH managers to reduce cost and improve the overall efficiency of the system.
