Abstract : A capital investment model (CIM) was developed to afford Navy management with a tool for imporved budget planning. The model provides the quantitative means of examining manpower and equipment requirements for NAS Saufley and associated squadrons to support specified pilot training rates. Process analysis was used to examine the work flow of the organizations, and it provides the mathematical structure for the model in terms of labor and equipment inputs, intermediate products, and final outputs (trained pilots). This structure combined with linear programming techniques, is used to determine the optimum (least cost) manpower and equipment requirements for a particular pilot training rate. The effects, in terms of manpower and equipment costs, of policy constraints imposed on the number or use of particular labor skill categories and equipment types can also be analyzed. (Author)
