Abstract : STAGE (Simulation of Total Atomic Global Exchange) is composed of four models. The actual gaming of stochastic events takes place in the Simulator model, and is performed by 'submodels', read-in from tape and executed as needed. This document describes the programs used to exercise this control, as well as those utility routines needed by the submodels to perform their functions. In addition, a system for resuming operation in case of interruption (both planned and unplanned) is described. Appendices are included explaining concepts peculiar to the STAGE System and describing the actual steps taken to operate the Simulator. (Author)
