Some of the problems in the validation of personnel requirements developed and predicted in the Qualitative and Quantitative Personnel Requirements Information reports are described. Included are problems inherent in the validation procedures, such as the nature of the predictor QQPRI, the problem of criterion selection and bias, and the changing nature of the criterion. Because of the multiple nature of these problems, available testing techniques are not adequate to handle the testing and provide desired information. A solution is presented. This solution requires a procedural change whereby validations are conducted during different but specific stages of system development and test. The validations would be oriented to obtaining the best validation at a particular time and for a particular purpose rather than attempting an overall test. Methods are suggested for determining manning deficiencies and readjusting the personnel subsystem.
