Abstract : Previous studies have indicated the need to develop computer programs for use in simulating R and D systems planning problems. This study is concerned with developing a UNIVAC 1108 program which simulates alternative budgeting and project selection decisions in planning Army Materiel Command R and D programs. Simulations are conducted to test the effects of errors in estimating parameter values on solutions. Risks, costs, and values are required input data for the computer programs. Case Western Reserve University's UNIVAC 1108 WAS USED IN THIS STUDY. (Author)
