Abstract:

The following conclusions were drawn 1 The feasibility of computer-assisted transportation planning at the strategic level was demonstrated. 2 The computer-assisted procedure gives TC the capability a To reduce by a factor of 2 or 3 the time required to complete the T Annex to a DASL subject, of course, to total elapsed time determined by procedures of other technical services b To increase the military soundness of strategic transportation plans without increasing total expenditure of effort c To respond quickly to changes in guidance d To test the effects of differing assumptions by repeated trials within planning deadlines and e To consider alternative courses of action in a single plan. 3 The feasibility of computerassisted planning in the other technical service areas is strongly indicated. 4 The feasibility of computer-assisted contingency and operational planning is indicated. 5 Computer-assisted procedures appear to have the potential for increasing accuracy and scope of plans and reducing planning time.
