Chief of Naval Air Training Resource Planning System (RPS).
Hodak, Gary W.; And Others
The Resource Planning System (RPS) provides the Chief of Naval Air Training (CNATRA) with the capability to determine the resources required to produce a specified number of Naval Aviators and Naval Flight Officers (NAs/NFOs) quickly and efficiently. The training of NAs and NFOs is extremely time consuming and complex. It requires extensive planning and constant monitoring to ensure efficient and effective use of available resources. The use of the RPS model is based on a roll back technique in which the desired output of NAs/NFOs is given as the independent variable. Then using a specified predetermined training time and attrition rate, the model determines the number of students that must enter the pipeline and the number of support personnel, instructors, and aircraft required for each training wing to meet the training objective.
