Application of the Navy Average Grade Model to the Naval Underwater Systems Center.
Mannis, Laurence S.
Forecasts for manpower requirements by NUSC for fiscal years 1973 and 1974 were made using a linear regression model of the goal programming variety. An application of one of the Charnes, Cooper, Niehaus career management models for manpower planning was then made to evaluate the consequences of the policy reducing average GS grade to 9.35 while attempting to meet these forecasted requirements. Estimation of model parameters and evaluation of subsequent output indicated the following: (1) Imposition of the 9.35 average GS grade requirements will seriously affect planned policies relating to NUSC's staffing structure; and (2) A most significant result of this study is that the structure of the Marki Markoff decision model, relating to a population that is smaller than usual, results in apparent statistical validity. It should provide a useful tool for many manpower studies at NUSC in the future. (Author)
