Abstract:

The Army is currently implementing a broadly based force modernization program featuring the introduction of a large number of sophisticated new materiel systems and simultaneous redesign of its force structure Division 86 in an all-volunteer environment. This ambitious effort places heavy demands on the Armys manpower and training resources. Projected declines in the qualitative and quantitative manpower pool from which the Army must recruit its future soldiers will compound that problem over the next several years. A necessary early step in coping with the Manpower, Personnel, and Training MPT resource problem is the production of an accurate and timely accounting of the number of people and skills needed, system by system and in the aggregate, to operate and maintain new equipment once fielded. To this end, the Army has developed an elaborate materiel acquisition process and a number of regulations and instructions which address the MPT issues to be considered during system development and acquisition.
