The problem of allocating different types of jobs among several classes of military manpower is becoming increasingly more important as military jobs grow more specialized. A model was proposed by Richard C. Grinold which constructs a personnel inventory by rank for each of several classes of manpower and then allocates that inventory to meet billet requirements. The model is designed for long-range planning purposes and produces possible inventory based on an optimization scheme that sets permitted errors in the allocation. The thesis presents a review and demonstration of the model based on the U.S. Navy officer corps, a discussion of implementation considerations, and further work on optimization schemes.
