The objective of this research was to improve upon the ability of OPNAV N1 analysts to quickly and efficiently obtain experimental information from their computational models. This will allow N1 to quickly identify and quantify the potential impacts of numerous resource and policy options. To accomplish this goal, the research assessed the feasibility and potential benefits of data farming with a selected manpower modelﾗthat is, embedding the chosen N1 manpower, personnel, training, and education (MPTE) tool in an environment that enables efficiently running and analyzing designed experiments over a breadth of input variables, thereby creating model-driven big data. The chosen model was the Officer Strategic Analysis Model (OSAM), and we also made some initial explorations of the Navy Total Force Strength Model (NTFSM).
