This thesis formulates the problem of selecting modernization program initiatives for implementation by the Marine Corps as a mixed integer programming problem. The problem is a generalization of the traditional resource allocation problem in operations research. When implemented as a computer system, it offers several enhancements over the system currently used by the Marine Corps planners. the system simultaneously maximizes benefit values and minimizes budget under utilization. when combined with the proposed acceleration procedure, it also allows for rapid "what if" analysis, an extremely useful feature for decision making. The prototype system was implemented using commercially available software. It is flexible and relatively easy to maintain. Data from the previous Future War Year Defense Plan (FYDP) was used to demonstrate the various applications and features of the system.
