The Aggregate Dynamic Analysis Model (ADAM) projects active duty Air Force enlisted personnel and their budget costs that will result from user-specified management actions and background economic conditions for 12 years into the future. These projections are for the aggregate force (total across all specialties) by pay grade, years of service, and category of enlistment. The management actions include accessions, reenlistment bonuses, early releases, early reenlistments, promotions, and involuntary separations. The background economic conditions controlled for by the model include civilian unemployment rate, ratio of military wages to civilian wages, and the Consumer Price Index. This user's guide volume describes what the model does, explains how to run the model, and gives example input and output screens. A companion volume, N-3020/2, presents technical documentation for ADAM.
