Abstract:

The RAND Corporation is helping to design an Enlisted Force Management System EFMS for the Air Force. The note describes the design, specification, and prototype implementation of a module in the EFMS that will help skills managers make bonus decisions. That module, which is called the Bonus Effects Model, will enable skills managers to evaluate the effect of alternative bonus plans on projected bonus expenditures and on manpower imbalances in individual specialties. It provides estimates by planning year of bonus expenditures, reenlistments, and inventory by year of service and it predicts how close both reenlistments and inventory will be to desired targets. Keywords Enlisted personnel specialists Air Force personnel Military Force levels Air Force planning Incentive contracts Reenlistment bonuses Manpower.
