The report describes the technical aspects and potential applications of a computer-based model simulating the flow of airmen through basic training and entry-level technical training. The objective of the Training Line Simulator is to assess the impacts of alternative recruit classification and training policies under a wide variety of assumptions regarding the quality of recruits and the difficulty of training. Parameters accommodated by the model include mandatory as well as desirable course prerequisites, attrition, setback and washahead rates, class schedules and quotas, and a host of individual airman attributes. The model evaluates the effects of a given set of training parameters on a given recruit input by determining the maximum percent fills of training quotas, the size of the waiting lines for technical training courses, class sizes, student-instructor ratios and the numbers of setbacks, attritions, washaheads and unassigned basic training graduates at weekly intervals.
