This report summarizes recent research on modeling Department of Defense manpower decisions in a "total force" management context — i.e., in a context that simultaneously recognizes the roles of the active, reserve, and civilian work forces in achieving both peacetime and potential wartime operating goals. The research extends an earlier model in several ways — most notably by allowing for rotation, retraining, and mobilization programs — and shows how the modeling approach can support the development of general manpower management guidelines.
