MICRO-U 70.1: Training Model of an Instructional Institution, Users Manual.
Springer, Colby H.
MICRO-U is a student demand driven deterministic model. Student enrollment, by degree program, is used to develop an Instructional Work Load Matrix. Linear equations using Weekly Student Contact Hours (WSCH), Full Time Equivalent (FTE) students, FTE faculty, and number of disciplines determine library, central administration, and physical plant costs. The Instructional Work Load Matrix is used to develop the number of sections, the number of faculty, the number of support personnel, instructional supplies, office supplies, and travel expense. The costs are developed for departments, distributed to disciplines, allocated to degree programs, and used to compute per unit costs for WSCH, degree program FTE, and FTE students. All computations are performed for 1 to 5 cases, each using the previous case as the base or default data. Thus, alternative cases for a single year or a 5-year incremental case is possible. The report program provides the following reports: Departmental Data and Resource Requirements, Budget Projections, Budget Projections by Discipline, Project Discipline Costs per WSCH, Degree Program Budget Report by Discipline, Annual Cost per Student by Degree Program, and Degree Program Budget Report by Expenditure Type. Operating instructions for the IBM system 360F and program listings are included in the manual. (Author/HS)
