Abstract
The transportation requirements estimator provided in the Allied Deployment and Movements System’s (ADAMS) Deployment Planning Module (DPM) can lead to questionable estimates for certain manifests. This paper develops an alternate simple estimation methodology and compares the performance of the two techniques to the “optimal” solution on a data set inspired by the Operation ATHENA deployment. The alternative estimator is shown to be more accurate, leading to conservative estimates which are high by around five to ten percent. The impact of other real world constraints on the two estimators is also discussed.
