Abstract:

This report describes five computer programs written to augment the network analysis of communication patterns within a complex organization provided by NEGOPY. All are written in FORTRAN IV and are designed for execution under a disc-based IBM 36070 operating system. The five are PROXVAL, EXTENDB, EXTENDA, COMCUM, and CONVERT. PROXVAL calculates the proximity of individuals within the organization providing a value which represents one individuals physical relationship to all others and providing proximity for all combinations of pairs of individuals. Program EXTENDB combines PROXVAL calculations of an individuals proximity to all others. Up to 99 PROXVAL runs can be combined 3,564 locations. Program EXTENDA combines PROXVAL calculations of the proximity of every pair up to 99 PROXVAL runs. Program COMCUM totals each individuals reported communication, providing a listing of the total amount of communication each engages in. Program CONVERT was introduced to convert data collected from specific channels to total communication data.
