The Management and Technology Area of IIASA has carried out case studies of large-scale development programs since 1975. The purpose of these studies is to examine successful programs of regional development from an international perspective, with a multidisciplinary team of scientists skilled in the use of systems analysis.

The study of the Bratsk-Ilimsk Territorial Production Complex (BITPC) represents an interim effort in our research activities. The first study was of the Tennessee Valley Authority in the United States; forthcoming is the study of the Shinkansen development program in Japan.

The present Report covers six major aspects of the BITPC program: goals, variants, and strategies; planning and organization; model calculations and computer applications; integration of environmental factors; energy supply systems; and water resources. It is hoped that the experience of the Soviet scientists and practitioners and the observations and suggestions of the study team will provide the IIASA National Member Organizations with insights into problem solving in the management, planning, and organization of large-scale development programs.

The study was accomplished with the support and assistance of the USSR State Committee for Science and Technology, and the Institute of Economics and Industrial Engineering of the Siberian Branch of the USSR Academy of Sciences.
