Abstract:

This manual provides the user and the programmer with reference material concerning the operations and maintenance of the Econometric Model for Optimizing Troop Dining Facility Operations. The model is centered around a goal programing model, capable of selectively achieving goals for food cost, labor cost, acceptability and nutrition in the design of the Army Master Menu. This manual is divided into two main parts a users guide, and a programmers reference manual. The users guide is oriented to the non-technical user, while the programmers reference is directed to the knowledgeable FORTRAN programmer. Material presented in this manual applies to that revision of the model that was placed into operations on the Burroughs BG800 computer used by the US Army Troop Support Agency TSA at Ft. Lee, VA. Runstreams pertaining to the revision of the model that was developed on the UNIVAC 110082 at CAA are included in an appendix of this manual.
