Abstract : This thesis describes manpower demand forecasting system used by the Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) both to obtain manpower resources for its facilities acquisition mission during the Planning, Programming, and Budgeting process and to allocate these resources among its Engineering Field Divisions (EFDs). The method by which NAVFAC developed its manpower demand forecasting is assessed as being valid. This thesis shows that the accuracy of this model, developed in 1980 using FY 79 data, can be enhanced by using more recent data over a period of several fiscal years. This is done in this thesis using FY 85 and FY 86 data. Thesis research showed that this same model can be used as a baseline with a high degree of accuracy to allocate resources among the EFDs; however, an expanded data base is crucial to improved accuracy. Other manpower staffing factors, not quantified in NAVFAC's staffing model; are described and their allocate these resources among Divisions is evaluated, and recommendations for improvements are made.
