Abstract:

This Note breaks the overall USAF manpower, personnel and training MPT system, documented in the companion volume R-2429-AF, into two subsystems 1 an authorizationassignment subsystem and2 a manpower requirementspersonnel objectives subsystem. The first subsystem focuses on the short term it allocates authorizations in accordance with manpower requirements and budgetary limitations and it recruits, trains, and assigns people to fill authorized positions. The second subsystem focuses on the long term it develops operational manning guidelines and overall workforce structure plans and personnel policies. Our approach here is evaluative. The purpose is to combine understandings obtained during our system-descriptive work, inferences drawn from readily available historical data, and logical criticisms of the systems operation to identify promising areas for system improvement andor research. The perspectives provided by reviewing the MPT system from these short-term and long-term viewpoints permit identification of important interrelationships among system components which might otherwise go unnoticed.
