Abstract : This thesis presents an Apple II Markov chain model software package programmed to be flexible, practical, and user interactive. The program addresses the future determination of manpower requirements by an application of a limited Markov chain model, a discrete Markov process with a stochastic matrix of transition probabilities. The user may manipulate data inputs to vary outcome effects. The program was written in Applesoft, and Apple II basic language. It has the capability to store, retrieve, and modify data for use with the calculation procedures. The program can be easily modified or enhanced to allow for inclusion or utilization of other models. (Author)
