Abstract

These proceedings report on the results of cooperation between the IIASA Management and Technology Area and a team of Japanese scientists from Kyoto University, Osaka University, and the IBM Center in Japan led by Y. Sawaragi. This seminar is the first in a series of meetings on research activities involving the Management and Technology Area and cooperating institutes. The work of the Japanese group is of particular interest since the Kinki region in Japan is a highly industrialized and populated region.

A computer-aided systems approach was used to assist the region's decision makers in solving problems of regional planning and development.

Three examples were discussed: a systems model, based on linear programming techniques, that deals with optimal regional development; a computer-aided planning support system based on system dynamics, input-output, and man-machine interface to aid in regional development decisions; and a water quality simulation model that utilizes a combination of dynamic, static, and linear programming techniques and is linked to the regional planning model.
