The statement of a calculation problem of a development program and its involvement in general planning for socioeconomic systems was discussed in. Difficulties of solving the problem are due to its essential non-linearity (combinatorial character) and high dimension.

Attempts to solve similar problems by using dynamic programming techniques are well known to be inefficient and impractical.

Therefore we need to develop and apply other various approximate and heuristic methods to deal with these problems. In particular, the idea of utilizing indirect methods of optimal control theory seems very promising to us.

In this paper we consider a model in differential form, and also some approximate and heuristic techniques for solving optimization problems on the basis of the model.
