The Resource Requirements Prediction Model 1 (RRPM-1): An Overview.
Gulko, Warren W.
This paper provides a brief overview of the conceptual approach used in the initial version of the WICHE Resource Requirements Prediction Model (RRPM-1). RRPM-1 is an institutional-oriented, computer-based model which simulates the cost of operating a college campus over a 3- to 10-year time frame. The model may be viewed as a management tool to assist higher education decisionmakers in understanding the long-range resource implications of planning decisions. This report presents information on (1) the role of RRPM, (2) design criteria, (3) model selection, (4) a generalized model, (5) The RRPM system and the dimensions of the RRPM-1 system, (6) computational flow, (7) projected unit costs, (8) projected degree-winner cost, (9) new construction costs, (10) the pilot test, and (11) future developments. A bibliography concludes the report. (AF)
