Continuing pressure to maximize the utilization of resources at all levels in public sector ogranizations invites the use of management science techniques in the development of strategic and medium range plans and policies. When both the number of constrained resources and the projects to which those resources must be distributed are large, management decision-making can be aided by reducing the number of alternatives through the implementation of an optimal decision model. Three resource allocation methods are presented for the Naval Air Test Center; the present incremental method; a capital budgeting method allocating one constrained resource in a satisfying solution; and an allocation model that allows conversion of manpower resources from one labor function and type to another through training, hiring, substitution of contracting. The latter model also includes constraints on capital investment and aircraft utilization in the selection of an optimum portfolio of projects over a time horizon of four years.
