Mission availability is a key component of system effectiveness wherein manpower forms a critical part of the resource requirements. Within the United States Air Force, military technicians supplement essential maintenance and logistics support for fighter aircraft. Under certain conditions, the placement of these technicians in their roles as reserve personnel creates disproportionate economic loss for the parent unit and the reserve unit. The results of an analysis of the F-15D fighter aircraft indicate that the organization costs of the military units have a significant effect on how long a reservist should partition duty between the military units to achieve a minimum loss for both the parent unit and the reserve unit. This research suggests another motivation for splitting the reservist’s time between the parent and reserve units. The methodology of using loss functions to address manpower allocation can be similarly applied to other areas where there is concurrent demand for the same personnel.
