Executive Summary       The  new  NASA  Constellation  Program  seeks to establish a permanently occupied  moon  base  as  a  training  ground  for  eventual long term stays on Mars.  Such a  base  will  require  a  supply  chain  to  keep  the occupants alive and well.  This project  explores  the  structure  of  such  a  supply  chain using a tool built for the task called  SpaceNet.

      On  January  14,  2004,  President  George  W.  Bush  named  a  new  NASA  goal  of  returning American astronauts to the moon  by  2020  for  long  term  permanent  human  presence.    To  explore  supply  chain  management  for  this  goal,  NASA  commissioned MIT to develop SpaceNet.   This  modest,  first  generation  freeware  program  models  interplanetary  supply  chains. Introduction
Image of page 4
      SpaceNet  uses  MATLAB  and  Excel  together  as  its  calculation  backbone.    It  has a graphical user interface and allows  the user to select elements and nodes and   to specify end demands.  It sets up, but  does not solve, optimization problems.  It  requires  external  packages  such  as  CPLEX or SYMPHONY to execute actual  optimizations.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
