Abstract : Two models for improving insights into the combat readiness of Army units are proposed. One model permits the effects of personnel turnover (turbulence) to be included in a strength indicator. The other model permits a more sophisticated look to be taken at the match between authorized and in-hand skills and skill levels and to modify the MOS indicator accordingly. Neither model requires units to report information not now being reported. Both models are simple in concept and operation, though one requires a simple computer program that is available. (Author)
