This thesis introduces FORCE, an interactive computer model to assist community managers in analyzing the impact of proposed changes in recruiting, retention, and promotion policies. Here, the model is used to evaluate the effect of proposed legislation which would exclude the U.S. Navy Nurse Corps from the provisions of the Defense Officer Personnel Management Act of 1981 (SOPMA) restricting the number of officers serving in the control grades (lieutenant, lieutenant commander, and captain). Data from the 1987-1989 Bureau of Medicine and Surgery Information System (BUMIS) and planned accessions are used to forecast end of fiscal year grade distributions from fiscal years 1991 to 1994. The forecasts are then compared to targeted end strengths, fiscal year 1989 grade authorizations and the Navy DOPMA allowance for the control grades. The results of this analysis suggest increasing vacancies in the control grades will relieve the U.S. Navy Nurse Corps' current lieutenant commander grade imbalance and decrease the proportion of the force structure serving in the control grades.
