A US Air Force USAF dataset containing 6 attributes and over 400,000 funded authorizations paid workforce positions is analyzed for significant manning relationships among 12 Service Core Functions SCFs and 32 functional areas. The authorizations are collapsed into 375 groups of 32 functional equities ranging from Acquisitions to Weather career fields. The SCFs are managed by 7 Core Function Leads CFLs who are typically Major Command MAJCOM commanders. Logistic fit analyses via logistic odds ratio OR comparisons and contingency table analyses reveal significant manning shortfalls in all 12 CFLs. The results of the analysis hope to better inform the USAF Strategic, Planning and Programming Process SP3. The SP3 is a Chief of Staff of the Air Force CSAF-approved framework that guides strategic decision making.
