Abstract : A description is given of the general flow of operations, input procedures, and output options of the computer program of the APT model whose methodology is described in detail in a previous document. The computer will process as many runs as desired, each run consisting of one or more weapon systems for one or more years of operation. Within a run, once a complete set of inputs has been entered for the first year of the first weapon system, only changes in those inputs need be entered for succeeding years and systems. Relevant resources and costs are calculated for each year and are printed in prescribed formats. In addition, two optional printouts of the values of the variables are available.
