THE CUTTER RESOURCE EFFECTIVENESS EVALUATION (CREE) PROGRAM--A GUIDE FOR USERS AND ANALYSIS

The Cutter Resource Effectiveness Evaluation (CREE) project has developed a sophisticated, user-oriented computer model which can evaluate the effectiveness of any existing Coast Guard craft, or the effectiveness of any of a number of proposed alternative craft (such as a hydrofoil or an air cushion vehicle), in the performance of a selected set of Coast Guard missions, in a given location under specified environmental conditions. The first part of this report describes the CREE Model computer program from the user's viewpoint, and includes complete details on the use of the program. The second part of the report discusses for analysts the structure of the CREE program and some of the difficult theoretical concepts behind it. (Author)
