United States Air Force Training Line Simulator. Final Report.
Nauta, Franz; Pierce, Michael B.
This report describes the technical aspects and potential applications of a computer-based model simulating the flow of airmen through basic training and entry-level technical training. The objective of the simulation is to assess the impacts of alternative recruit classification and training policies under a wide variety of assumptions regarding such parameters as course prerequisites, attrition and setback rates, class schedules and quotas, and a number of individual airman attributes. The model's results include determinations of maximum percent fills of quotas, sizes of waiting lines for courses, student-instructor ratios, and setback and attrition rates. The report also gives an extensive description of input control cards and files necessary to run the simulation. (WDR)
