The program accepts statements of conditions -- expressed as logical expressions of stand-state variables -- to be met and sets of activities to be simulated when the conditions are met. The combination of a condition and a set of activities is considered a rule of stand management. Several rules may be used to define a stand management policies. Replaces General Technical Report INT-196 (Crookston 1985); retains most features of the Event Monitor, provides several new features.
