APPLYING OPERATIONAL ANALYSIS TO URBAN EDUCATIONAL SYSTEMS, A WORKING PAPER.
SISSON, ROGER L.
OPERATIONS RESEARCH CONCEPTS ARE POTENTIALLY USEFUL FOR STUDY OF SUCH LARGE URBAN SCHOOL DISTRICT PROBLEMS AS INFORMATION FLOW, PHYSICAL STRUCTURE OF THE DISTRICT, ADMINISTRATIVE DECISION MAKING BOARD POLICY FUNCTIONS, AND THE BUDGET STRUCTURE. OPERATIONAL ANALYSIS REQUIRES (1) IDENTIFICATION OF THE SYSTEM UNDER STUDY, (2) IDENTIFICATION OF SUBSYSTEMS, PROCESSES, FLOWS, AND DECISIONS, (3) DEVELOPMENT OF A SIMULATION MODEL INCLUDING BEHAVIORAL AND PERFORMANCE SUBSYSTEMS, (4) VALIDATION OF THE MODEL, AND (5) USE OF THE MODEL TO EXPLORE SUCH SYSTEM CHARACTERISTICS AS MANAGEMENT CONTROL, ALLOCATION OF RESOURCES, AND DECISION FLOW.
