Abstract : This thesis is the development of the program PIPE, written in FORTRAN 60 for the 1604 digital computer, which will project current enlisted personnel inventories of certain subsystems of the Navy for as much as five years into the future, and determine the least expensive personnel replacements necessary to enable these projected inventories to meet stated requirements. The program reduces the solution time of this particular problem of the personnel planner to minutes. PIPE is not designed to be a mechanical process to be used blindly. Rather, this program can be used effectively to improve the art of personnel inventory projection when the personnel planner uses his experience to properly interpret the results.
