Abstract:

A choice problem in program development is to select from among the Tasks proposed in support of postulated Hypothetical Concepts those which will give a maximum predicted work within the overall constraints of program funding. A paper presented at the 1964 Army Operations Research Symposium F. Hill and L. Roepcke. An analytical aid in the choice of long-range study tasks. Proceedings of U. S. Army Operations Research Symposium, May 1964 deals with an analytical method for aiding in the choice of long range study tasks. The first step in the procedure is to determine the maximum predicted worth of the entire program as a function of the total funds available without regard to funding category constraints. A dynamic programming solution for this phase of the problem is presented in this paper. Author
