In July 1982, the engineer Studies Center was asked to assist the Directorate of Resource Management then called the Resource Management Office in improving Army Corps of Engineer USACE manpower management procedures. A major part of ESCs initial involvement was to be the design and implementation of mathematically-based methodology that among other things would allow Corps managers to prioritize manpower assignments consider function, organization, contratual, and appropriation features and combine requirements and allocations in one integrated system. Several events occurred which shifted emphasis from methodology to standards development. Because of the promise of dthe system it was designing, ESC decided against simply abandoning the methodology. Instead, the progress that had been made would be documented and an exaple that would illustrate the desirable features of the model would be created. This report has a threefold purpose to describe the events and considerations that argued against developing a new system prior to the availability of standards, to briefly define the linear programming approach, and to describe and illustrate the prototype allocations and requirements system that ESC believes satisfies USACEs stated needs.
