Abstract : This planning refers to the production and use of types of weapons that have already been developed. All combinations of target and type of weapon are considered. The problem is to distribute the total available resources among these combinations in such a manner that the value of the targets surviving the attacks is minimized. A deterministic model of a flexible nature for representing situations of this nature is developed. An elementary iterative method for solving the allocation of resources problem is obtained. These results are computer oriented and should be feasible for application even when the model is of an exceedingly complicated nature. (Author)
