Data was gathered at HQDA HQ, USAREUR USAREUR MACOM and from other public sourcesprinted matter. A study of the impact of JCS planning on USAREUR ALO development, manpower management for USAREURs force and a study of Army planning for USAREURs forces was conducted.

The environment requires about 1.5 percent of the commands assigned personnel and new system fielding requires about 1 percent of the commands strength in the affected area i.e., system relatedspecific.
