Abstract : This report contains detailed descriptions and flow charts of the programs that constitute the Busy Hour Model. It is written to assist the program analyst or programmer in program maintenance and update. The model was developed for use in the design and analysis of voice networks. It is programmed in FORTRAN IV and COBOL and designed to operate on IBM 360 and 370 computers. The model is a steady-state simulator that distributes traffic through a network and calculates grade of service from probability equations. The system is disk oriented and contains various data preparation and network simulation programs. The primary inputs to the model are card image files stored on disk that describe the network and traffic to be simulated.
