Milch, Paul R.
MetadataShow full item record
A mathematical model is described for forecasting the distribution of officers in a Navy officer community at some future point in time. The distribution is in terms of activity types and four numbers. The activity types stand for a categorization of the kind of billets Navy officers may occupy on successive tours of duty, such as sea and shore billets. The specific method of categorization is dictated by the community modeled and the purpose of the analysis. The emphasis here is on the mathematical derivation, although a numerical application is also included. Keywords: Personnel model, Officer distribution, Careers. (sdw)
