Abstract:

This study evaluated two methods of measuring peacetime capability for the 44XX Civil Engineering Macro Air Force Manpower Standard. The current method measures capability by comparing the quantities of assigned manning and authorized manpower. The alternative method developed by the study measures capability by comparing required manpower, authorized manpower, and assigned manning capabilities, and considers the combined qualitative and quantitative manpower factors of experience grade, technical ability AFSC, and quantity. Combined results showed small net differences 2-6 percent between quantity and capability for authorizedrequired, assignedauthorized, and assignedrequired levels. Individual bases varied more as much as thirteen, twenty six, and ten percent respectively. Manpower and manning capability measures are impacted when quantity and quality factors are aggregated.
