Ruger Chair of National Security Economics, Newport, Rhode Island, 13-15 May 2009Conference proceedings"The purpose of this workshop is to provide a collegial forum for a small and select group of foreign policy and regional experts to formulate and recommend new directions for American foreign policy for each of the major regions of the world. With a new American administration in office, this is an opportune time to assess American foreign policy and to set future directions. What challenges and opportunities will the United States, and its allies and friends, face in the future? What changes should be made to all elements of U.S. foreign policy, including the diplomatic, economic, military, and informational elements? What elements should continue? What are the varying perspectives of nations within the regions concerning U.S. foreign policy? What changes in U.S. foreign policy would they desire? Overall, what new directions for U.S. foreign policy will better support the interests and objectives of the United States, its allies, and its friends? A total of thirty-three individuals participated in this by-invitation-only workshop held at the Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island. The college and its staff provide a professional environment to facilitate small group workshops in exploring specific issues. Seventeen panelists prepared and presented papers on topics of their choice within the subject areas of their respective panels. Following a presentation of the papers, all participants engaged in extensive discussion of the papers and of the focus of the panel. All discussions were conducted under a nonattribution policy. All papers and summaries of working-group discussions (prepared by each panel moderator) are included in this monograph. The monograph is being widely distributed within the national security community and the general public."--Introduction, p. 11147ocn020461179book19860.81Foundations of force planning : concepts and issues332ocn463604262book20090.50Naval War College (Newport, RI)American foreign policy : regional perspectivesConference proceedings+-+5528829336261ocn681600096book20100.79William B.

A dynamic programming model, treating all parameters as if they were known with certainty, is used to investigate the nature of optimal credit behavior under these two environments. (Author)52ocn000118907book19690.92Brown, George FranklinStatic models of bank credit expansionThe purpose of the paper has been to further examine a theory of stochastic reserve losses and expansion of bank credit in the light of errors and omissions in the presentation. Due to these, interesting relationships between the certainty and uncertainty solutions to the problem of bank credit expansion in response to a change in reserves have not been examined. Of major policy interest are the various results relating optimal expansion to the magnitudes of the different parameters. (Author)33ocn017737627book19710.92Lloyd, Richmond MDynamic programming models of short term bank reserve managementA member bank of the Federal Reserve System is required by law to hold a certain percentage of its deposits in the form of reserves. The reserve requirement must be satisfied on average over a reserve period. Several dynamic programming models of this short term reserve management problem are developed. The objective is to minimize the discounted expected cost of operation over the reserve period. The bank is restricted to one reserve adjustment mechanism, buying or selling funds on the federal funds market. One decision is made for each day within the five day reserve period. The optimal policy for each model is shown to be of a simple form. The first model assumes complete certainty. The second model assumes that future federal funds rates are known, but future changes to the bank's reserves are random. The third model assumes that both future changes to reserves and future changes to the federal funds rate are random.

The paper defines a large class of such problems, when there is a positive lead time for delivery, which can be treated by the classical formulation with a single state variable. All results which hold for inventory models with a constant delivery lag can be shown to hold also for the model. An application is made to a system in which demands are generated by part failure and in which a portion of these failures are repaired after a given (constant or probabilistic) time. (Author)11ocn227570641book1969A dynamic inventory model with delivery lag and repairAn inventory system is to be operated over a horizon of T periods during which demands for spare parts arise due to part failure. Successive demands are assumed to be independent and identically distributed random variables. The model considers the periodic review of a single part with backlogging of demand. The decision variables are the amount of initial inventory to stock before departure and the amount of new parts to be ordered during the cruise. Ordering costs include fixed plus unit charges, and linear holding and penalty charges are assessed on end of period inventory. The model is put into a dynamic programming framework. Optimal ordering policies and the existence of an optimal initial inventory level are shown. (Author)11ocn863580703book20100.47William B.

The nation is in the sixth year of war since 9/11. The FY 2008 Defense budget request of $481.4 billion and the Global War on Terror request of $141.7 billion, if approved, will represent the tenth year of robust growth in defense spending since its low point in the late 1990s. Even given these resource levels, the Department of Defense faces significant strategic and force choices as it attempts to deal with today's realities and prepare for future challenges. Today's realities include the war on terrorism; stability and reconstruction operations in Iraq and Afghanistan; significant OPTEMPO, PERSTEMPO, readiness, and quality of life issues; and the costs of resetting and recapitalizing the forces, among others. Future challenges include the attention given to irregular, catastrophic, and disruptive, as well as traditional, challenges; new operational concepts; force structure and end strength choices; active and reserve component realignments; R&D, modernization, and procurement bow waves; the reorientation of U.S. global defense posture; and joint and interagency unity of effort. This workshop addresses security challenges and strategy; defense resources and risks; land, maritime, air, space, and special operations forces; and joint interagency efforts. The primary focus is on strategic and force choices for the future11ocn255164209book20050.47A nation at war : reconciling ends and means ; proceedings Naval War College Intersessional Conference Newoirt, Thode Island 7-8 March 2005Conference proceedings11ocn227695002book1972Naval Aircraft Rework Facility Study - An Applied Model for Workload Planning and BudgetingThe report documents a five-year planning model which produces detailed production plans and budgets for the entire Navy's Aeronautical Depot Maintenance Program. Using the method of linear programming, the model determines minimum cost workload assignments which satisfy all depot maintenance requirements. Several physical and manpower capacity measures are used to ensure that plans are within the production capabilities of each rework facility. The model allows for multiple shift operations, changes in the size and distribution of the work force, and the assignment of work to non-Navy facilities. A production plan and budget for FY-1974 and various sensitivity analyses are presented to illustrate the models' uses.
