This report details research and analysis efforts conducted to implement and improve the Forecasting and Allocating Army Recruiting Resources Study -- Sequential Hierarchical Allocation of Resource Elements system of models. The models were developed, beginning in 1990, to assist Army manpower planners in quantifying the impact of resource changes on recruiting, and concordantly, the impact of changes on recruiting levels on resource needs. Personnel turmoil and changeover caused full-scale acceptance and implementation of the system, particularly at the HQDA level, to be delayed. This report documents an example of use and suggests areas for improvement. The system of models appears to provide reasonable, real-time answers to questions regarding required resources to support different recruiting scenarios.
