Abstract:

Computer-based optimization methodology was developed for the purpose of defining long range management goals for each major Navy personnel skill category. These goals are defined in terms of objective optimum force distributions by skill grouping, by length of service and by paygrade. Function evaluation involves the use of four major models per capita cost, stable strength, utility, and reenlistment elasticity models. Descriptions and examples, the concept of personnel utility, and the overall optimization methodology are presented.
