Abstract : The problem of forecasting Naval shore station manning requirements is examined by considering the flow of goods and services. The approach of process analysis, which combines alternative productive processes, is used. Linear models are formulated for centralized planning at various management levels, from the operation of a single shore station to that of a command composed of several such stations. The application of the decomposition principle as a solution technique for centralized planning is further developed into a methodology for decentralized planning. (Author)
