University Macro Analytic Simulation Model.
Baron, Robert; Gulko, Warren
The University Macro Analytic Simulation System (UMASS) has been designed as a forecasting tool to help university administrators budgeting decisions. Alternative budgeting strategies can be tested on a computer model and then an operational alternative can be selected on the basis of the most desirable projected outcome. UMASS uses readily available input data in forecasting and provides on-line displays to enable rapid evaluation of simulated strategies. Hard copy reports provide detailed evaluation of the impact on every university unit plus a file copy for future use. The model is flexible and a decision maker with no programing experience and minimal preparation can execute a simulation and see the results immediately. (CH)
