This computer will accommodate the following variables: Given an attrition rate determine the blanking scheduling; given bidding practices and labor availability determine optimum assignments; determine the radio expense for blanked crews; determine trust-fund contribution schedule; determine the economic impact of alternate crew agreement schedules. The approach is a Monte Carlo simulation with a 2-week time interval which corresponds to bi-weekly bidding. Crews work jobs during two weeks with non-retirement attrition and absences determined stochastically and retirement based on date of entering service. Model includes an analysis program to aid in interpreting results.
