Description: Range RAM (Resource Allocation Method) is a computerized planning method designed to assist range managers in developing and selecting alternatives in spatial and temporal allocation of resources. The technique is applicable at the frest or district management levels, or their equivalents. Range RAM can help formulate plans that maximize the production of range outputs, net revenue, or that minimize the cost of management while meeting a variety of constraints on range productivity, budget level, and economic returns. Constraints are specified by expected budget levels and aggregate output targets. Information needed to used Range RAM includes estimates of production, receipts, and management costs associated with proposed actions.

Keywords: Timber RAM, range management planning, multiple-use management, linear programming, simulation, computer programs
