Abstract : The report describes a computer model developed to help investigate the costs of centralizing U.S. Air Force base-model computation workload. The model permits the analyst to estimate the cost of consolidating multiple existing or proposed facilities into fewer facilities. The report describes the model, the assumptions implicit in its world view, and the inputs required by the analyst. The limitations of the model and possible future modifications are also discussed.
