USER MANUAL FOR THE MARAD FLEET OPERATIONS SIMULATION. VOLUME 3. FLOWCHARTS AND DOCUMENTATION

This manual contains the data format specifications, operating instructions and the program documentation for the programs which make up the MarAd Simulation Model. It is divided into two parts: (1) The Simulation Itself (Input, Rollcall, Schedule Generator, Output) and (2) The Auxiliary Programs (Edit and Extrapolator, Post-Processor, Voyage Log Sort and List, Selective Listing). In addition, the Maritime Administration has purchased a general-purpose tabulating program called ADLTAB, which was separately documented. The reason for making this division of the value is the major difference between the subjects. The simulation itself is a large program for the IBM 7090, written mostly in FAP. The others are much smaller, and are written in FORTRAN or AUTOCODER. The first therefore requires much more elaborate documentation in the form of flowcharts, subroutine description, lexicon, and so on.
