Abstract : Within the field of manpower and personnel management over 230 computer models are reported and a significant number are exposed to an examination of their techniques and areas of application. In addition, 102 related studies and programs are identified. A strategy for performing a technical evaluation is developed and a functional taxonomy of computer models designed. A review of the questionnaire technique employed in the data acquisition phase of the project, is included. A glossary of modelling terms and a bibliography is also included. A by-product of this research is the sizable Compendium of Models and Related Manpower/Personnel Programs and Studies (listed as Appendix 'A' and published under separate cover as WTR 73-25A).
