Abstract : GENERATOR is a deterministic computerized tool designed for use in conjunction with the Forces and Weapons (FOREWON) force planning system. The primary purposes for this project are to refine the engineer troop requirement by basing engineer effort on tasks within the combat and communications zones and to generate concurrently the Class IV (construction) materiel required to support Army Force development plans. GENERATOR operation will insure that DA-level acquisition decisions regarding forces and Class IV material can be made simultaneously.
