A COMPUTER SIMULATION OF A STATEWIDE FILM LIBRARY NETWORK--A FEASIBILITY STUDY FOR ACTUAL OPERATION. FINAL REPORT.
CHRISTEN, FRED L.; OXHANDLER, EUGENE K.
TO COMBAT INEFFICIENCY IN FILM USE IN NEW YORK STATE SCHOOLS, THIS STUDY SOUGHT A WAY OF OFFERING TO TEACHERS GREATER FLEXIBILITY IN THE ORDERING, SCHEDULING, AND UTILIZATION OF FILMS. DATA WAS GATHERED ON FILM LIBRARY INVENTORIES, BOOKING RECORDS, TEACHER PREFERENCES, AND SYSTEM COSTS. TEACHER PREFERENCE DATA CURVES WERE INCONSISTENT WITH FILM AVAILABILITY CURVES, BUT COMPUTER SIMULATIONS PROJECTED THIS DATA INTO A MORE EFFICIENT FUTURE SYSTEM AND FOUND THAT A CENTRAL COMPUTERIZED BOOKING, DISTRIBUTION, AND BOOKKEEPING SYSTEM FOR ALL EDUCATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS IN NEW YORK IS INDEED FEASIBLE. FINALLY, COSTS OF A COMPUTER SYSTEM ARE DISCUSSED, AND FURTHER STUDY OF EFFICIENT FILM DISTRIBUTION METHODS (SUCH AS VIDEOTAPE RECORDERS ON A STATEWIDE TV NETWORK) ARE RECOMMENDED. (LH)
