Abstract : Managers of military and civilian personnel systems justifiably demand an estimate of the payoff, in dollars and cents, which may be expected to result from the implementation of a proposed selection program. The Cost of Attaining Personnel Requirements (CAPER) models provide the manager with the information needed to formulate an optimal personnel recruiting-selection strategy. This strategy will minimize the expected total cost of recruiting, selecting, inducting (processing), and training a sufficient number of persons to meet a specified quota of satisfactory personnel. The report provides a detailed explanation of the steps involved in using the CAPER II model with, or without, access to computer facilities. Application of the model equations is illustrated using an example problem. A FORTRAN IV computer program including detailed documentation is presented. (Author)
