The Personnel Plan identifies management and structural objectives for each component of the personnel force. A portion of that plan delineates airman management objectives which provide a management system directed at achieving and maintaining an optimum airman force and grade configuration. TOPCAP Total Objective Plan for Career Airman Personnel, identifies the optimum airman force and grade structure. TOPCAP defines a quantitative objective, by occupational specialty, which reflects an enlisted career force meeting current and long range requirements, based on achievable retention patterns and desired grade distributions by year of service, and which is obtainable at a reasonable total systems cost. The development of the TOPCAP configuration, as well as guidance in force planning and programming necessary to attain and maintain the TOPCAP objective, is facilitated by the TOPCAP Computerized Management System. The report is the second of two technical reports which analyze the role of personnel quality in the establishment of enlisted force structure objectives.
