The computerized manpower planning models in this thesis are designed to be used in conjunction with a course in the Manpower, Personnel and Training Analysis (MPTA) curriculum at the Naval Postgraduate School. The purpose of these models is to introduce students to some of the basic manpower modeling ideas. The models included here were written in the APL (A Programming Language) programming language and include a Markov Chain model, a model to compute attrition rates from both cohort and census data, a vacancy chain model and a career patterns model. The programs run on IBM-compatible microcomputers using DOS (Version 2.1 or later), STSC's APL*PLUS System for the PC (Version 9.0 or later) and STSC's STATGRAPHICS (Statistical Graphics System) (Version 4.0 or later). The latter software is needed only for a graphical comparison within the attrition rate model. A user's manual for each model is included in the appendices.
