Computer routines, operating manual, and programmer's manual for the Depot Transportation (DT) Simulator, the third of four simulation programs constituting the Planned Logistics Analysis and Evaluation Technique (PLANET). The DT simulator is designed to simulate the movement of logistics resources from base to base and from base to depot or factory and return. It takes as inputs the various operating characteristics of the transportation system, the expected cargo to be moved through time, and a planned set of transport vehicles. Outputs from the simulation can be used as an aid in determining the quantity of resources that can be moved over time and the costs associated with the operation of the system.
