Abstract:

A research objective of the Air Force Human Resources Laboratory is the development of methods for defining the components of innovative technology and for measuring the effects of the incoming technology on Air Force human resources. The human resource parameters of concern include manpower e.g., numbers, job types, skill levels, training considerations, and cost data. Earlier investigations established the feasibility of using human resources data in design trade studies and of determining and graphically depicting the array of trade-off options available before inception of hardware design. The purpose of this review was to establish the current status of the methodology for forecasting and assessing technology and for quantizing human resource parameters with respect to the impact of incoming technologies.
