Relating Agency Objectives to Budget Organization: Factor Budgeting for an Education Film Library.
Alexander, William E.; Holland, John W.
A major problem in the use of films in instruction is to get the right film to the right teacher when he wants it and needs it, and to do all this at a minimum cost. This paper presents a view of film distribution systems in terms of two interrelated subsystems: a logistic subsystem and a behavioral subsystem. The logistic subsystem consists of those factors which affect the number of bookings that a library completes. The behavioral subsystem consists of those factors which affect the demand for films. The paper proposes that a program budget approach be used to minimize costs. A program budget would break down allocations according to the independent factors affecting a system's operation. (JY)
