Introduction to the Resource Requirements Prediction Model 1.6.
Clark, David G.; And Others
The Resource Requirements Prediction Model (RRPM) 1.6 is an instructional cost simulation model for use in all types of postsecondary institutions including community colleges, vocational schools, and large and small 4-year institutions with or without major research activities. The model provides institutions with a tool with which to analyze various institutional alternatives for the utilization of a limited set of resources. In addition, RRPM 1.6 generates information necessary for the preparation of instructional program budgets. Institutional data, either historical or projected, may be put into the model. The model then calculates the program cost information and implied resource requirements to undertake any given series of programs. RRPM generates 4 different types of reports: (1) organizational unit reports providing line-item budgets for various organizational units within the institution; (2) program budget reports indicating the discipline or department contributions to various instructional programs; (3) institutional summary reports; and (4) formatted display reports that show all parameter data for the institution.
