Abstract : Methods for securing advanced starts are detailed which secure basic feasible solutions without recourse to so-called Phase-One Procedures in Manpower Planning Models of Goal Programming variety. The indicated starts are obtained by access to knapsack type methods secured from the authors' recently developed methods for securing explicit solutions in convex goal programming. A significant reduction in computational time and labor is thereby secured. (Author)
