Abstract:

The Air Force Office of Scientific Research and the AF Human Resource Laboratory are jointly conducting a RD program to provide Air Force manpower and personnel analysts with the capability to consider--in a timely and consistent fashion--both second and higher order, in addition to primary, response characteristics of the Air Force Manpower and Personnel System AF MPS to proposed policy implementations. The basic direction of the program is toward developing a large-scale, empirically based, computer simulation model of the AR MPS. As a means of demonstrating the basic structural form and logic flow of an Integrated Simulation Evaluation Model ISEM of the AF MPS, an ISEM-Prototype was designed, constructed, and installed on the USAF CDC Computer System at Wright-Patterson AFB. The ISEM-P design is based on a modular representation of the AF MPS in which long-range force structure planning, training program requirements, short-range personnel assignment planning, and actual personnel flows are simulated as integrated activities for the purpose of evaluating force structure response to various mission and policy changes.
