Abstract : This thesis documents the methodology and parameters used in designing a manpower training requirements model for new weapons systems. This model provides manpower planners with the capability of testing alternative fielding policies and adjusting model parameters to improve the use of limited personnel resources. Use of the model is illustrated in a detailed analysis of the planned introduction of the Infantry Fighting Vehicle into the Army. Two fielding policies are presented that illustrate the model's versatility. Additional computations are included, describing the derivation of instructor requirements from the model's output. The thesis is presented with the user in mind, emphasizing the importance of a thorough understanding of the factors that influence planning in a manpower system.
