Abstract : An analysis of the movement of Army units from their home station to their designated Airport of Embarkation (APOE) or Seaport of Embarkation (SPOE) is performed. It is intended to be used in the overall deployment of Army units to areas where contingencies exist. A computer simulation model is written to investigate the inflow of the Army units' personnel and equipment to the APOE or SPOE and the effects of varying the unit's movement capability. General Purpose Systems Simulator III Language is used. A set of flow charts describing how the model operates, a glossary of language terminology, and a complete program listing along with program output are included. (Author)
