Abstract : The thesis examines requirements placed upon a selected Marine Corps Command (Communication Company, First Marine Division, Camp Pendleton, California); quantifies them into man hours, and compares the total accumulated with the total man hours available to the Commander. The study was constrained to training and maintenance requirements and excludes administration, corrective maintenance, and supply requirements. Identification of the requirements was accomplished by reviewing pertinent directives and technical manuals. Quantification was based on empirical data received from Communication Company plus conversations with key personnel at Headquarters, Marine Corps, Washington, D.C., and East and West Coast Marine Corps Units. The conclusions discuss the relative amounts of over commitments; the necessity of skillful management at the company level; and the responsibilities higher headquarters have as related to the problem areas. The recommendations are actions which could assist in alleviating over commitments. (Author)
