Abstract : This thesis provides a foundation for the application of fundamental Markov analysis to manpower modeling in the Armed Services or in other similar organizations. A handheld calculator software package is introduced to assist students, military analysts, and others who model manpower systems. Markov analysis methods are incorporated in program software to permit discrete time investigation of the Navy's manpower structure. A user program guide for application to a broad range of manpower issues is also presented. (Author)
