Priority Determination and Resource Allocation by Planning-Programming-Budgeting and Cost-Effectiveness Analysis in Educational Systems.
Miller, James G.; Rath, Gustave J.
A planning/programing/budgeting system and a cost-effectiveness analysis are complementary rather than opposing methods of operations research. The relative value of each process is dependent on the function each is to fulfill. The planning/programing/budgeting system is useful in determining educational objectives, developing programs to meet those objectives, and budgeting to satisfy the requirements of the programs. Cost-effectiveness analysis is useful for comparing alternative programs in terms of output per unit cost. Effective educational management demands an extensive, up-to-date information system for maximum utilization of any type of operations research. (RA)
