Abstract : The purpose of this research project was to use the concepts, techniques and research findings from the field of Human Resource Accounting (HRA) to build a microcomputer based system for calculating replacement costs for key civilian positions in the Navy. HRA can be defined as the measurement and reporting of the economic cost and value of people as organizational resources. It involves accounting for investments in people, their replacement cost and for their economic value to organizations. This study focused on the aspect of HRA dealing with replacement cost and involved developing a computer based method to calculate the recruitment, selection, development (training) and separation costs associated with positional replacement cost. Replacement cost is defined as the sacrifice that would have to be incurred at the present time to replace human resources currently employed.
