Abstract : Manpower planning problems in the United States Navy arise from complexity of the interrelationships between the Navy's operating and supporting forces, lack of means to establish requirements for support and inability to allocate manpower on the basis of essential work to be performed. To resolve this problem it is necessary to trace, identify, and quantify the actual support requirements that must be satisfied by individuals, ships, squadrons and shore activities. The report discusses these levels of support.
