The models presented in this volume were designed to fit the typical situation. Each user of these techniques will have to modify them to ensure their applicability to his institution. Although the material exploits the capabilities of the PLANTRAN system, computer processing is not required for use of the models. The techniques dealt with here can all be implemented manually. Each is treated for its relation to overall planning; its underlying theory, assumptions, and problems; and a diversity of approaches. A micromodel is developed and applied to a set of realistic institutional data via the PLANTRAN system. Information is also provided on methods of data collection and on types of changes and adaptations that can be made in the models. (Author/WM)
