Abstract : The report describes a non-linear programming model for application to long range planning problems of the resource allocation type. A significant characteristic of the methodology is that time-phased acquisition and disposition of systems is explicitly considered in the optimization. Volume 2 provides an operational description of the computer program, sample problems, program flow charts, and program listings. (Author)
