The Chief of Staff of the Army decided that the New Manning System could improve cohesion, teamwork, and combat effectiveness through the use of the unit replacement system, coupled with the regimental system, instead of the individual replacement system. Presently, the New Manning System is being applied exclusively to the combat arms branches. This research reviews the primary features of the New Manning System and the British Regimental System and the effects of cohesion. This research also discusses why it is not feasible to apply the principles of the New Manning System, in its present configuration, to the Adjutant General Corps. The New Manning System is then modified to provide the Adjutant General Corps with a brand regiment, functionally grouped battalions within this regiment, and geographical regions for the battalions.
