Abstract : This research describes and illustrates a non-linear optimization approach, installed at Navy Headquarters for generating the minimum budget to meet the various accession quotas. It can be operated for a multi-year scenario and meets yearly or monthly requirements for quality accessions and for the size of the Delayed Entry Pool. It splits the derived budget between the recruiters and advertising, allocates the recruiters to districts, determines the geographical mis and timing of advertising expenditures and generates the optimal flow of enlistment contracts. It can be used to help explore the inputs of varying quotas, initial conditions, economic scenarios, cost per recruiter, attraction in the Delayed Entry Program, and demographics. Budget runs for FY79 are included. (Author)
