Abstract : The appendix describes the program that calculates and ranks relevance numbers for all branches and nodes of a relevance tree structure created by the user. The program is broken into four subsystems, each consisting of several subprograms and/or sorting operations. The linkage between subsystems consists of data files that are created by one subsystem and used by another. The basic output of the program is a listing of the elements of the relevance tree and their relevance numbers. These lists include element identification, titles and cumulative branch relevance numbers sequenced according to descending relevance number and increasing ID. Relevance numbers for specific military objectives in selected areas may then be used in the force mix calculations.
