Abstract : This Volume exercises the system described in Volume II and reports on an initial attempt to order and quantify objectives, needs, goals, constraints, program costs, PFP, and their interrelationships. Two of the principal objectives from the list of 19 identified national transportation objectives were quantified in some depth. Treating these two objectives in detail tended to identify problems of importance in validating and extending PPB to the operational level. Significant insights were obtained in the process. A concluding section discusses alternatives to the currently expressed objectives of the national transportation system.
