COBRA v.5.60 ALGORITHM MANUAL
This is the algorithm manual for COBRA (Cost Of Base Realignment Actions) version 5.60.
This manual was prepared for the Total Army Basing Study (TABS) Office. The government project
manager is MAJ David Smith, (703) 696-9778.
The first section contains a picture of each input screen with each input field and the applicable
The second section contains an example of each output report (except for the Input Data
Report) listing which algorithm or input screen field provides each data element. Note that some reports
display figures totaled by base, by year, or by both base and year while other reports may total the
same data differently (for example, the COBRA Realignment Detail Report breaks data down by year,
but the One Time Cost Report provides totals for all six years of the scenario.
The third section contains an English description of all algorithms used by this program, with
formulae where necessary.
Finally, there is a table of acronyms, containing definitions of acronyms used in this document.
