A description of a conceptual methodology to assist both Air Force planners and contractors, engaged in early development planning, to estimate total gross requirements of manpower for future weapon and support systems. The personnel subsystem concept, developed by the Air Research and Development Command, is used as the framework around which to organize the major parametric conditions that affect manpower estimates for advanced systems. The sequence of steps required to predesign a personnel subsystem is described. This early design information helps provide the basis for estimating manpower requirements in a total system context. From the organization structure viewpoint, this total includes general functions such as operations, unit administration, maintenance, support, and prorated shares of Air Force logistic support and higher headquarters administration.
