Abstract:

This thesis evaluates the forecasting accuracy of the Structured Accession Planning system for Officers STRAP-0 model. The vehicle for this examination is the implementation plan for the Aviation Continuation Pay ACP program. An important policy question to be addressed is whether the ACP bonus program will increase the continuation rate of mid-grade aviators sufficiently to fulfill department head requirements in the mid 90s The design of the STRAP-O system and its components are explained and a synopsis of the ACP program is included. The methodology used for determining the accuracy of the STRAP-O model is outlined, as well as the results obtained by running STRAP-0. These results are compared to the results of a CNA study on the ACP program and to the actual number of ACP recipients in 1989. In addition, suggestions are made to assist in the creation of a personal computer version of the STRAP-O model that will replace the current mainframe version.
