Abstract:

The document provides a basic, non-mathematical introduction to the ETNAM model and the associated system of computer programs. It provides a basic guide to the preparation of input data and the operation of the system of computer programs from an analytical point of view. It is intended to serve the military analyst as a basic introduction and guide to the application of the ETNAM model to mobility problems. ETNAM is an optimizing model that uses a special form of the simplex algorithm of linear programming and the shortest chain algorithm of graph theory to select routes and allocate resources to those routes so as to minimize cost, minimize time or maximize flow subject to the constraints of the network and the available resources.
