Abstract:

The computer-based optimization methodology discussed in this paper was developed for the Bureau of Naval Personnel 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. The objective function minimized in the optimization methodology is cost per utile per man-year. Function evaluation involves the use of five major models the Per Capita Cost Model, the Stable Strength Model, the Utility Model, the Reenlistment Elasticity Model, and the Optimization Methodology. Descriptions and examples illustrating the models and the overall optimization methodology are presented. Author
