Data analysis techniques for a containerized export cargo transportation system by Tom McCarthy ( Book )
5 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This thesis explains various analytical techniques used during research work on the containerized export cargo transportation system at the Military Ocean Terminal, Bay Area, Oakland, California (MOTBA). A series of six computer programs were written in order to summarize data for a distribution audit, while another two programs summarized the data generated from a container stuffing simulation model. Results show that the average age of cargo at stuff is determined by a combination of variables, each of whose significance is related to the degree of activity at the container stuffing station for an individual POD or consignee.
