This report concludes a series of research studies in the area of optimal allocation of resources by means of mathematical programming techniques. The technique has several significant attributes time-phased acquisition and disposition of resources are explicitly considered. Nonlinear non-convex constraints and objective functions are possible. The model has been successfully demonstrated on a major problem issue the Materiel Procurement Priorities Review Committee, or MPPRC, deliberations in 1974 and has been turned over to an Army user group, the US Army Concepts Analysis Agency CAA. The model can accept either of two primary problem structures 1 maximize the effectiveness or benefit obtained from accomplishing various levels of effort subject to specified budgetary constraints, or 2 minimize the cost of achieving specified levels of effectiveness where budgetary constraints may or may not be imposed. Volume II describes the adaptation of the model to the CAA computer, the UNIVAC 1108.
