The model specifies annual accessions plus minimum allocations to formal and on-the-job training needed to maintain future inventories within specified limits of manpower requirements. Plans are derived simultaneously for many skill categories over several years. Restrictions are imposed on the size of annual inventories, flows between skill categories and smoothness of flows into formal training. Experience levels within skill category are explicitly accounted for by allowing specification of up to 3 length-of-service groups. The methodology is linear programming, which can be extended to stochastic programming to account for uncertainty in projections of future requirements. Plans derived using actual Navy data are presented. (Author)
