Abstract : This study is a sensitivity analysis of the Mobilization Base Requirements Model (MOBREM). MOBREM uses anticipated workloads to compute CONUS base manpower required to mobilize, train and prepare Army units for overseas movement and to sustain Army bases during full mobilization. MOBREM contains parameter files reflecting Army mobilization policies. The effects of policy changes can be analyzed by varying selected parameter values. Using experimental design and statistical analysis the study identifies the parameters having the greatest impact on CONUS-base manpower requirements and subsequently uses these parameters to formulate regression equations to enable quick estimates of aggregated manpower requirements.
