"The management decision technique, currently in use, of determining priority of EIR evaluation is basically that of "feel and experience" along with the "most pressure" applied from outside the responsible organization. The feasibility of a computerized management decision concept has been studied at the lowest system with the objective of applying this to the next higher systems and finally arriving at an overall system value to obtain system priority. This study develops the technology of operations research and the associated computer techniques, delineates the problem and develops a mathematical model to simulate this management decision technique. Furthermore, it utilizes logical relationships of the dependent and independent parameters and the system, and analyzes and interprets the results to determine the EIR with the highest priority"--Abstract, page ii.
