The Petroleum Disruption Response System
MetadataShow full item record
As a result of DoD "Supply Assurance" initiatives prompted by the 1979 disruption, numerous policy options have been developed to help the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) more effectively deal with future shortage situations. The key to avoiding the problems of 1973 and 1979 is early identification of shortage situations and selection of appropriate policy options designed to ensure a steady supply of military fuels during energy emergencies.
The Petroleum Disruption Response System (PDRS) is a decision support system designed to assist DFSC energy analysts and planners in preparing recommendations for the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense (OASD) energy policy staff on appropriate policy options to ensure adequate petroleum supplies for the national defense.
This paper contains a conceptual model of PDRS that is based on a network optimization distribution model. The model would optimize the resupply distribution network in terms of minimum cost solution.
