Critically examines 26 military manpower models in light of their ability to aid planners in managing an efficient military force. This subset was selected from the more than 200 extant military manpower models. The report surveys the state of the art and describes the decision environment of models of this type. An overview of the individual models is followed by criticisms and recommendations for the future. The last two chapters contain a more classical survey of each of the 26 models, their theory, objectives, and operating characteristics. The appendixes examine specific ideas in greater detail.
