Abstract
This document describes a tool designed to help solve a resource optimization problem that the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) will face as it ventures to increase its presence in the Arctic. The problem is to determine the optimal locations to place replenishment sites in the Arctic so that ship resources are used efficiently. The tool models a ship’s resource depletion as it operates and uses this information to determine the location and the number of replenishing sites needed to optimize resource consumption. We begin by discussing the problem abstractly and describing the context in which we decided to implement our solution to the problem. We then go over the methodology and the operation of the tool, providing illustrative notional examples to demonstrate the utility and flexibility of the tool. An annex is also provided which explains the steps required to operate the tool.
