Abstract : The report describes a new regression forecasting model and associated operational methodology for the prediction of the annual Air Force requirement of airman F type PCS moves. The results of a five year test are presented as an evaluation of predictive effectiveness of the model. A recommendation is made to implement the new model and methodology to improve the accuracy of the Air Force PCS budget and as a basis for further model development and testing. (Author)
