AbstractThis report is a technical manual for the OrgSim simulation program. OrgSim is a GAMS program that can simulate planning, coordination, and information processing in an organization. The basis is a mathematical programming presentation of organizational activities. The theoretical background is described in R. B. Burton and B. Obel, Designing Efficient Organizations: Modeling and Experimentation, North Holland, 1984 and in Mathematical Contingency Modeling for Organizational Design: Taking Stock, in R. M. Burton and B. Obel, Design Models for Hierarchical Organizations: Computation, Information and Decentralization, Kluwer Academic Publishers, Boston, 1995, pp. 3-34. The manual describes the mathematical models using GAMS notation. Additional all files are listed and commented upon. Further, a complete data set for the sample case - HOC (Burton and Obel, 1984, 1995) is given.
