The officer grade limitations model : a steady-state mathematical model of the U.S. Air Force officer structure by Rand Corporation( Book )

3 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Officer Grade Limitations Model was developed as part of a series of models to be used by the Air Force to develop long-term planning policies that guide the careers of its officers and to promote fair personnel practices and a stable officer structure. Fed into the model are the total number of officers permitted at each grade (as might be determined, for example, by Congress) plus the expected or desired ratios of officers (at each grade and rating) that will be given regular commissions, ratings, or promotions, or that will be retired. In the past, models have usually computed grade limitations based on given personnel policies. The distinguishing feature of this model is that grade limitations are given and implications of them computed. The model prints out, in detail or in summary, the accessions, and personnel policies necessary in order to meet the input specifications. (Author)
The consolidation of maintenance durations with applications to aircraft sorties by N Kaufman( Book )

2 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A description of two computerized methods, CONCUR and CONVOL, for consolidating information on the total time required to perform two kinds of maintenance tasks. Aircraft maintenance can be separated into those tasks that may be started at the same time and those that must wait until other tasks have been partially or fully completed to be initiated. CONCUR applies to the first group of tasks, CONVOL to the second group. Given the time-to-repair distribution of each individual task, CONCUR determines the time-to-repair distribution of the longest time, i.e., the time to complete all tasks. Similarly, CONVOL determines the distribution of the total time required to complete maintenance, given the distribution of each sequential task. Used together, CONCUR and CONVOL allow probability distributions of times required for distinct maintenance actions to be compressed into a single distribution corresponding to the total aircraft maintenance time. In conjunction with operational data, sorties generation capability can be established. (Author)
A programmer's guide to SAMSOM II by Gary DeWard Brown( Book )

2 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A technical manual is presented for programmers concerned with modifying or adapting programs of SAMSOM II, RAND's Support Availability Multi-System Operations Model, to a particular computer installation. The guide is divided into four major sections, one for each of the three programs that comprise SAMSOM II--INPUT, EXECUTION, and OUTPUT--and a fourth section dealing with problems common to the three programs. The analysis covers output program logic, subprograms and general flow, program conversion, and debugging procedures. (Author)
A FORTRAN programmer's introduction to SIMSCRIPT II by Herbert J Shukiar( Book )

2 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study is intended to introduce the FORTRAN programmer to some of the main concepts and features of the first three levels of SIMSCRIPT II--the levels which constitute an algebraic compiler. Emphasis is on the power and flexibility that SIMSCRIPT gives the programmer. Among the distinctive features are (1) the SIMSCRIPT preamble; (2) the preamble statements, such as NORMALLY, DEFINE, DEFINE TO MEAN; (3) the fact that any number of conditional expressions can be executed if a logical condition is met; (4) the ability to reread the same records in different formats. Unlike FORTRAN, SIMSCRIPT passes argument values rather than argument locations between subprograms. The method of constructing arrays is radically different. The SIMSCRIPT programmer can conserve core storage, construct ragged tables, generate tree structures, and do list processing with relative ease, and his programs can be read rather than deciphered.

The SIMSCRIPT II Programming Language: IBM 360 Implementation by Rand Corporation( Book )

2 editions published between 1967 and 1972 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The report contains information on the implementation of the SIMSCRIPT 2 computer language on Rand's IBM 360 Model 65 computer system. It should be of general interest to IBM 360 users, and to persons undertaking the task of implementing SIMSCRIPT 2 on other computers. Both the implementation of this report have been revised to eliminate errors discovered since the report was first released (July 1969) and to bring out a few new features
Overview of RSAC system software : a briefing by H. Edward Hall( Book )

1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"This Note gives an overview of the RAND Strategy Assessment Center's (RSAC) software design and summarizes characteristics of the automated war gaming system. It reviews basic concepts and requirements and examines three different aspects of the RSAC software design: (1) System interface, including the complex communication among the RSAC system's various software modules; (2) the communication mechanism which promotes modularity, thus simplifying system integration, evolution, and maintenance; and (3) system control, which treats game phenomena with extensive use of co-routines managed by a coordinating program. The Note discusses interactive gaming with human teams, identifying several classes of interaction and describing techniques that promote it. Finally, it discusses the overall computing milieu characterized by operations on VAX 11-750 or VAX 11-780 computers, the C programming language, UNIX operating system, a computer code requiring about two megabytes of random access memory, and the potential for eventual operations on geographically separated microprocessors."--Rand abstracts

The officer force progression model : a steady-state mathematical model of the U.S. Air Force officer structure : a report prepared for United States Air Force Project Rand by Rand Corporation( Book )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The report describes a computer-based model designed to provide personnel planners with broadly based aggregated data and detailed officer inventories as well as flows reflecting the effects of policies and conditions under investigation. The purpose is to assist the Air Force in achieving stable accession and training rates, smooth career progression, and control of officer inventory by year group
A user's manual for SAMSOM II : the support availability multi-system operations model( Book )

1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The report identifies and explains model inputs, summarizes its logic, and describes available outputs. SAMSOM II is a Monte Carlo model programmed in SIMSCRIPT for large-scale digital computers. It simulates weapon system operations and logistics support requirements. The model is activated by aircraft sortie requirements and alert postures and accepts inputs describing resource availability, work schedules, and hardware design parameters reflecting system reliability, maintainability, and inspection requirements. The model simulates operations events (alert requirements, sortie-generation capabilities, and readiness postures) and associated logistics support requirements (manpower, equipment, facilities, and, to a limited extent, parts) for one or more aircraft at one or more bases. It also takes into account weather constraints, resource shortages, flying schedules, alert commitments, sortie configuration requirements, abort rates, attrition and battle-damage estimates, and operations policies governing sortie cancellation and make-up practices.
