Abstract : This research, conducted at the request of the United States Coast Guard Manpower Requirements Determination Division, determines the data requirements for partial automation of the manpower requirements determination process. The Division currently uses a manual process to determine manpower requirements; however, the research proposes that many of the tasks can be partially automated to provide greater efficiency as well as capability. To accomplish this goal, the factors that contribute to determining manpower requirements are modeled in an entity-relationship diagram, and subsequently implemented in a relational database. These efforts confirmed that implementing a Manpower Requirements Determination Automated Information System would create greater efficiency in the United States Coast Guard s manpower requirements determination process. Additionally, due to the relative sameness of the United States Coast Guard and the United States Navy, the research recommends a continued relationship between the United States Coast Guard s Manpower Requirements Determination Division and the United States Navy s Manpower Analysis Center in support of future adaptation in regard to manpower requirements determination.
