Computing Magazine Storage Space

​Does any agency or organization have a method (forumula or algorythm) for computing storage space requirements in magazines?  I've asked depot systems and USADACs and never got a clear answer. Mostly what I have received was "there is no standard, everyone does it differently" but no examples.  Mostly what my team here does is compute the SQFT for a variety of dodics, and then divide available space by the SQFT reguirements, then tweak it for various known pallet size and cube - cross-checking againstt compatibility and type, and compare with drawings of like items  - very slow methodical, tedious, drawn out. . 

Does anyone have a formula (ie. Short Ton to CF) etc for Rough Order of Magnitude (ROM) purposes.

There is a very old and still active standard, but yes as everyone does compute storage differently. Usually to their needs and that of the command. 

The form is DA FORM 3260, 07/01/1967,IGLOO PLANOGRAPH, Link here https://armypubs.army.mil/pub/eforms/DR_a/pdf/DA%20FORM%203260.pdf

And the Publication, JOINT SERVICE MANUAL (JSM) FOR STORAGE AND MATERIALS HANDLING {NAVSUP PUB 592; AFMAN 23-210; MCO 4450-14; DLAM 4145.12},04/12/1994, link here https://armypubs.army.mil/ProductMaps/PubForm/Details.aspx?PUB_ID=71069

I have seen the manual updating of storage information which then feeds into excels to keep up with the amount used and available. If more information is needed, just reach out to me in email.

The US Navy has developed a program to determine magazine capacity based on magazine configuration/capability, ammunition footprints, compatibilities, and sited NEW limits. If you are interested in learning more contact a.m.dugger.civ@us.navy.mil or christine.m.mintz.civ@us.navy.mil or joshua.m.wustner.civ@us.navy.mil.
