The paper describes an information system to assist military planners by providing immediate, easy-to-understand displays to aid in the comparison of Army force-structure alternatives. The version of the model described herein is a follow-on to the original batch system. A cathode-ray tube CRT remote terminal facilitates man-computer interaction and improves the speed of system responses. The CRT accepts all procedural instructions for the use of the model, enabling the system to be used even by Army planners who know nothing about computer programming or programming languages. As a force-planning tool, it is designed to be used in conjunction with other existing planning models.
