Abstract : A method has been developed for an accurate and comprehensive forecasting of manpower requirements for new weapon systems. The manning estimate is developed through a series of integrated steps leading to position descriptions and numbers of men required. Early training information is obtained directly from Task Equipment Analyses; information covering ground support and other equipment, spares and consumables is obtained as a by-product. Plans are presented for an approximation of the effect of environment upon manning requirements, for the determination of manhours required for work of a type not amenable to direct task analysis, and for the estimation of maintenance activity frequency rates.
