Abstract : The objective of this effort was to develop manpower-estimating equations to forecast aggregate manpower requirements within the base operating support (BOS) sector of Navy training activities. Training activities were organized into training complexes according to like geographic location. Data on the physical size and population supported by the training complex were matched with measures of student workload; that is, workload imposed by mission-related forces resident at the complex. Multiple regression analysis produced a two-part statistical model for total BOS-training manpower. The real property maintenance component of the model is driven by facility size; and the other base services component, by student workload (tenant population at naval air stations). Therefore, the resulting model separates the generally constant manpower required to maintain an activity of a certain size from the BOS requirements generated by the primary base mission. (Author)
