Dynamic Study of the Impact of Government Regulations on Small Surface Coal Operator.
For Reference Only At Bureau Libraries :205 pages
A system dynamic model was constructed as a framework to study the longterm consequences of government regulations, and the delays inherent in these regulations on the functional areas of small surface coal operators. The system structure is composed of four interacting sectors: a small coal operator sector, a government sector, a market sector, and a financial-banking sector. The small coal operator is further subdivided into five interacting subsystems; land management, production management, capacity planning, finance and accounting control, and a pricing mechanism. Several policies to alleviate the financial burdens of small coal operators are tested.
