Abstract : This paper describes the Total Army Personnel Life Cycle Model (TAPLIM) policy analysis model. A description of TAPLIM's features and solution methodology is presented. The paper also describes the conversion of TAPLIM into a formulation suitable to run in the General Algebraic Modeling System (GAMS) software. The result is an easy to use, maintain, and update model. This version of TAPLIM more efficiently accommodates the analysis of multiple personnel policies, decreases running time, and produces output that is suitable for import into a spreadsheet or immediate examination. Examples are presented to illustrate capabilities of the GAMS version of TAPLIM.
