The Constrained Force Model, CONFORM, is designed to assist force planners in the task of adjusting proposed theater troop lists to satisfy troop ceilings, fiscal and other constraints. The model is especially suited for troop list evaluations and analyses concerned with support allocation role, constrained force design, support shortfalls and theater force costing. CONFORM, using an extension of linear programming called goal programming, is an optimization model that integrates mathematical programming into the support roundout process thereby enabling the planner to control the support shortfalls that occur when adjustments are made in troop lists. The model is operational at the US Army Management System Agency. Author
