Abstract:

The report is one of three volumes describing computer programs of the QUICK-Reacting General War Gaming System QUICK. These volumes complement other NMCSSC Computer System Manuals on QUICK by discussing the programs from a computer programming point of view. This volume, in six parts, concentrates on the Plan Generation Subsystem of QUICK. Other volumes are available for the Input Subsystem and Simulation Subsystem. Collectively, these volumes provide a good basis for maintenance activity on the QUICK System. Based upon a suitable data base, and user control parameters, QUICK will generate individual bomber and missile plans suitable for war gaming. The generated plans are of a form suitable for independent review and revision. Subsequently, execution of the planned events can be simulated. Various statistical summaries can be produced to reflect the results of the war game. A variety of force postures and strategies can be accommodated.
