Simulation of Space Needs and Associated Costs.
Banghart, Frank W.; And Others.
This paper presents a model that uses projected pupil enrollment to estimate gross space needs and associated costs for various classifications of educational activities. The simulation consists of two linked programs, one using a version of the modified "cohort-survival" technique and the other estimating space and money necessary to meet the projected needs. Computerization of the model provides the user with a variety of information, including the total square feet to be constructed and the adjusted costs. (Figures 3, 4, and 5 on pages 13, 15, and 16, and Table 2 on pages 18-19 may reproduce poorly in hard copy because of marginal legibility.) (Author)
