Abstract : This thesis analyzes the Army's Output Oriented Resource Management System (OORMS) to evaluate its effect on manpower management. OORMS was developed in response to a need for a systematic feedback loop in the Army's Planning, Programming, Budgeting, and Execution System (PPBES) process. The system is designed to provide feedback in terms of outputs achieved for inputs assigned in the PPBES. This research focuses on the impact of OORMS on manpower management in terms of the quality and usefulness of the information provided and the workload required to support the system. The study supports the conclusion that OORMS, as currently developed, does not support manpower management. Recommended actions to improve the usefulness of OORMS are provided.
