Abstract : The report describes the development and application of a computerized model for planning a continuous, sufficient input to the Basic Nuclear Power School, Class C. The Navy Enlisted Classification (NEC) code assigned to personnel designated for this school is 9901; hence, this model is referred to as the 9901 planning model. This model considers four different sources of student input, and their associated attrition rates, and programs the personnel into the school over a period of 22 calendar quarters (66 months). The model, which automates all aspects of the 9901 planning procedures, will not only relieve the present computational burden and eliminate calculation errors, but also will provide results earlier in the planning period, thus permitting the testing of many more policy alternatives than is possible under current procedures.
