Abstract : A mathematical model was developed to determine at what point in the life cycle of a family housing unit it is economical to modernize, to continue routine maintenance, or to replace. The economic decision model, determines the optimum investment strategies throughout the housing unit's life. Computer programs were developed on the CDC 6400 computing system. The model was field tested for three Navy family housing projects in the Norfolk area. Plans for modernization and replacement were developed for the three housing projects. (Author)
