Abstract : The visit allocation model CDC 6600 FORTRAN computer program is designed to assign visit site points to paths in such a manner as to include all visit sites and to minimize the total path distance subject to restrictions on (1) the maximum allowed path distance (range) associated with each vehicle, (2) the maximum number of visits associated with each given vehicle, and (3) the total number of vehicles available. (The program will allow for vehicles having different maximum visit capabilities). (4) Paths are further constrained to not pass through user-defined circular forbidden regions. These regions may be defined so as to overlap one another and form a barrier. (Author)
