Three-level models for hierarchical coordination
Some properties of hierarchical organizations, such as the types of information that may be effectively used for coordination purposes, may be studied by interpretation of mathematical programming decomposition models. Two new models are developed to represent a three-level organization. The models have been implemented on a CDC 6500 computer, and a description is given of their application to a complex transshipment problem. The results of this effort indicate that information regarding 'deviation from goals' is of significant value for coordination of the solution procedure for this type of problem.
