Abstract : During the current phase of the Computerized Advance Personnel Requirements and Inventory (CAPRI) development and implementation program, the operational system design was reviewed, approved, programmed, and installed on the Bureau of Naval Personnel's IBM 7080-1401 computers. The CAPRI System is currently being applied to the management of approximately twenty-five weapon systems. The system described in this report was developed to provide the Bureau of Naval Personnel (BuPers) with a management tool for efficient and effective planning, development, production, and control of personnel required to support both new and operational naval weapon systems. The system operates under the concept of an organization for PS program management within the bureau. The volume describes the Personnel Subsystem life cycle which parallels the weapon system life cycle. This spans the period from the issuance of a General Operational Requirement (GOR) to the phase-out of the last operational model of the system or until such time as the operation and maintenance of the weapon system becomes so routine that the PS can no longer be uniquely identified by special Navy Enlisted Classifications (NECs). Two distinct CAPRI subsystems are described: the Network Planning and Analysis (NP+A) Subsystem and the Billets and Inventory (B+I) Subsystem. (Author)
