This user's guide is for users of the Total Force Blue Line model, which projects rated inventories for the Regular Air Force, Air Force Reserve, and Air National Guard; accounts for interactions between them; and helps the U.S. Air Force meet future rated management needs more efficiently. In the user's guide, the authors provide an overview of the model; the steps required to upload inputs, generate data, and explore and download those data; a discussion of how to generate data on major airline hiring loss; specific instructions and information on the differences between major weapon system and mission design series implementations of the model; and examples of each input.
