Abstract:

The COMRAD Study sponsors requested CAA develop a methodology to make the Army force component allocation process more objective. The study developed, tested, and demonstrated a methodology for allocating force structure requirements into components ActiveReserve using the time-phased force requirements output of the Force Analysis Simulation of Theater Administrative and Logistic Support FASTALS Model as the principal input. The study identified key factors which impact on the component allocation process, e.g., unit availability, crisis response, forward presence, etc., and incorporated, where possible, those factors into the methodology. The methodology was tested using a microcomputer-based relational data base program and selected Total Army Analysis-2001 TAA-Ol parameters. Application of the methodology provides a potential starting point which can assist force integration officers during the resourcing phase of the TAA process.
