Abstract:

The TRAM is a multiphase set of computer programs which model a proposed training system and determines resource utilization, scheduling problems and costs. Each program is described by a users guide and programmers guide. Also indicated is the relationship of TROLIE, the quick-look version of TRAM, which was developed. Phase 1 of the TRAM is used to assemble most of the input data and to check it for consistency and completeness. The Phase 2 program further checks linkages and network integrity and prepares lists of names, student demands, trainee source lists and resource lists. Phase 3 resolves the trainee demands into classes and determines the amount of resources used by simulating the training system. Phase 4 computes the amount of resources used by comparing the unused and original resources, and then preepares an economic analysis of the run. Phase 5 processes the trainee source and lag records and writes a report on these uses. The TROLIE program provides a quick-look version of TRAM. TROLIE provides the data set inputs required by TRAM Phase 4. Phase 4 TRAM then performs the same economic analysis.
