Abstract : There has been a need for a method by which to quantitatively predict manning requirements of various system designs, and especially within any one design to depict the probable interplay between such system elements as personnel, operational performance, and logistic support if that design is developed. This report contains queuing tables which were developed to be directly applicable to characteristics of military systems having quantitative spares, personnel, component failure rates, and operational readiness performance requirements. The tables provide a ready means of estimating the performance capability of a complex system which depends upon capabilities of distinct support units. The tables also provide a manual means of performing tradeoff analyses between personnel, logistic support components, test equipments, component reliability and maintainability, and the number of systems to be supported. Examples of the practical applications of the tables are included. (Author)
