Abstract:

The JCAP Priorities Model is a group of programs which evaluates and orders decision alternatives, such as various schedules of projects, for maximum planned growth to multiple goals in accordance with goals and priorities established by the manager himself or by higher authority. The purpose is stated simply as to develop and rank decision alternatives for maximum achievement of overall management goals, both economic and non-economic. The model answers questions of how, when, where and in what amounts should resources be allocated to competing options in situations where multiple objectives prevail. The Priorities Model, in achieving this objective, utilizes new technique -- GOAL GROWTH PROGRAMMING -- to develop target goal growth paths that reflect both short-range and long-range management priorities. The model then resolves the trade-offs involved so that the final solution does represent the best attainable goal growth plan from among the many combinations of alternatives available.
