Abstract : RAND is helping to design an Enlisted Force Management System (EFMS) for the Air Force. The efms is a decision support system designed to assist managers of the enlisted force in setting and meeting force targets. The system contains computer models that project the force resulting from given management actions, so actions that meet targets can be found. Some of those models analyze separate job specialties (disaggregate models) and others analyze the total enlisted force across all specialties (aggregate models); some models make annual projections (middle-term models) and others monthly projections. The Short-Term Aggregate Inventory Projection Model (SAM) is the component of the EFMS that makes monthly projections (for the rest of the current fiscal year) of the aggregate enlisted force.
