Concepts Analysis Agency developed a new computerized model, the Personnel Readiness Indicator Model PRIM. PRIM is a computer model which distributes projected personnel inventories to projected Army jobs and measures the resulting readiness. Personnel assignment policies are simulated and the results provide the means for evaluating the long-term effects of the policies. Sensitivity test analysis showed that PRIM satisfactorily models the personnel assignment policies for which it was designed and computes personnel readiness reports in accordance with AR 220-1 while providing flexibility in the areas of amount of speciality or grade substitution. PRIM is sensitive to the variables important to policy specification--minimum and maximum fill levels and the relative importance of policies.
