dc.description.abstractThis study, through the use of discrete event simulation and modeling, explores various prioritization disciplines for U.S. Air Force Military Family Housing maintenance, repair, and renovation projects. Actual data from the Military Family Housing Real Property Maintenance Model database are used to build the simulation model. The model is run using various queueing disciplines which represent the various project prioritization disciplines available to the installation Civil Engineer. The current, or standard, prioritization discipline is repesented by a simple first in-first out queue. Alternative disciplines queue the projects according to estimated project cost and estimated project completion time. Comparisons between the standard model and the various alternatives are conducted using paired-t tests on two primary and one secondary performance characteristic. The results of this study show that when projects are ranked according to low value first with respect to estimated project cost, significant improvements are realized.en
