The Use of Computers and Simulation in the Development and Management of GEM.
Duncan, Glenn E.; Bauch, Jerold P.
Georgia Educational Models (GEM) will proceed to utilize computers and simulation to their fullest cost effectiveness potential simultaneously in operation and in research, while avoiding both the restrictions and duplications which come from doctrinaire insistence on maintaining an artificial separation between management and research uses of computer simulation models and the omissions and "illusions of adequacy" which come from too little interaction with empirical facts and goals. The fundamental scientific paradigm which has guided development and management of GEM thus far has proven itself practical, effective, and economical and has demonstrated itself to be feasible for carrying forth the further development, the implementation, and the sustained operation of the GEM system through creation and use of a computerized overall system simulation model.
