Abstract : The thesis develops deterministic and stochastic mo els for comparison of attrition and promotion rates for senior Naval officers. The deterministic models are meant to locate feasible region for promotion and attrition rates. The stochastic models give the probability distribution of inputs into the grade, and retirements from the grade, which result from a promotion system based on a minimum time in rank, or a promotion system where the number of promotions are determined independently of the number in rank.
