Since manpower is the largest consumer of Air Force dollars, the problem of determining accurate manpower requirements has been present throughout the existence of the Air Force. An emphasis is placed on accurate maintenance manning, primarily due to the scale of the maintenance task. The problem is that no systematic research has been performed to determine if current methods provide for an equitable distribution of aircraft maintenance manpower within the constraints of efficient resource utilization. The thesis identifies conditions that have molded manpower and maintenance policies in the past and follows their evolving path to the methods of determining aircraft maintenance manpower as of 1972.
