Abstract : The Aggregate Lifecycle Effectiveness and Cost (ALEC) model enables managers of Air Force enlisted personnel to compare the cost effectiveness of alternative management actions for a part of the force selected for analysis. Example actions are limits on the numbers of various types of enlistments, reenlistment bonuses designed to increase the number of persons making the Air Force a career, retraining programs that transfer personnel from one specialty to another, and the early-release program. This volume presents the microcomputer model that estimates the cost effectiveness of management actions for a given part of the enlisted force. Model users can evaluate complex combinations of actions and examine specific parts of the enlisted force. Keywords: Cost effectiveness, Cost analysis, Mathematical models, Air Force personnel, Personnel management, Manpower utilization.
