Abstract : The report contains two principal presentations which are of value to civil defense researchers and operational planners. First is a presentation of a prototype model and analysis method which can be used to assess regional manufacturing system vulnerability and alternative regional civil defense plans. Second is an illustrative example which applies the prototype method to a specific regional manufacturing system (Louisiana-Southern Mississippi). Taken together, these presentations provide general concepts and specific results pertinent to the development of meaningful civil defense plans and actions for a manufacturing oriented geographic region.
