dc.description.abstractCurrent force planning methodology for determining the proper level, mix, and balance of U.S. Army Engineer Forces required to support theater level military operations is examined and a linear programming model is described for use in the planning process. The structure of the linear programming model and feasible ways to derive required parameter values are explained in detail. A test problem and results obtained using the linear programming model are presented to amplify the explanations and to provide a basis for further evaluation and analysis. Alternate model formulation for solving minimum force, minimum cost, or maximum productivity theater force objectives, and extensions for applications of the model in force development and analysis activities are described.
