Abstract : The SIL-II Model is intended to provide a systematized approach to the analysis of training problems. It presents a means of conducting rapid analyses of constrained training conditions, investigating changes in parameters of the training establishment, and costing training programs. The model is, in effect, a manpower accounting system which distributes current and projected accessions to meet current and projected needs. The model is designed to operate under constraints of manpower and/or budget, and to generate the training capability with such restrictions imposed. There are reports generated which show schedules by class and course, by overage and underage in meeting the demands, and, ultimately, by manpower category for the entire Army. SIL-II is an integration of a number of training reporting systems in use elsewhere in the Army.
