Abstract:

The objectives were 1 determine the cost of trained personnel requirements TPR fluctuations 2 identify authorization tolerances with which the MAJCOMS could live 3 identify areas of responsibility in the TPR environment and 4 propose solutions that would enable Air Force and ATC to reduce TPR turbulence. The principal cost of TPR turbulence is associated with technical training enlisted instructors. Additional costs, in the form of loss of investment, are incurred when training has been rendered but is no longer needed. Costs associated with base operating support and contract services are considered negligible when compared with instructor turbulence costs. Total dollar cost attributed to TPR variations in FY 76 is about 8.8 million. An additional cost in mission degradation associated with undermanning was found to be 262 man-years. Author
