Abstract:

THE PROPOSED EFFORT WILL ASSESS THE FEASIBILITY OF USING COMPUTER AIDED DESIGN TECHNOLOGY TO PROJECT SYSTEM RELATED MANPOWER REQUIREMENTS. MANPOWER AND SKILL DETERMINATIONS HAVE HISTORICALLY OCCURED LATTE IN THE DESIGN PROCESS AND THUS HAVE HAD LITTLE IMPACT UPON SYSTEM DESIGN DECISIONS. THE INCREASING SCARCITY OF MANPOWER RESOURCES REQUIRES THAT THEY BE GIVEN AN INTERACTIVE ROLE IN SYSTEM DEVELOPMENT. THE PROPOSED CAD/MAN SYSTEM WILL PROVIDE A CAPABILITY FOR REAL-TIME ASSESSMENT OF THE MANPOWER AND SKILL REQUIREMENTS ASSOCIATED WITH DESIGN AND EQUIPMENT DECISIONS. IT WILL ALLOW FOR ON-LINE COMPARISONS OF THE MANPOWER REQUIREMENTS ASSOCIATED WITH DESIGN OPTIONS AND WILL FACILITATE DEVELOPMENT OF SYSTEMS WHICH ARE THE MOST EFFICIENT USERS OF HUMAN RESOURCES. CAD/MAN WILL BE BUILT ON EXISTING COMPUTER AIDED DESIGN TECHNOLOGY COMBINED WITH QUANTITATIVE MANPOWER-DESIGN RELATIONSHIPS. THESE RELATIONSHIPS WILL BE DEVELOPED FROM EXISTING OPERATOR, MAINTENANCE AND SUPPORT DATA TO ESTABLISH THE LINKAGES BETWEEN EQUIPMENT DESIGN FEATURES AND MANPOWER AND SKILL REQUIREMENTS. THESE RELATIONSHIPS WILL PROVIDE THE BASIS FOR PROJECTING THE HUMAN RESOURCE REQUIREMENTS ASSOCIATED WITH NEW SYSTEM DESIGNS. THESE PROJECTIONS WILL BE SUITABLE FOR DEVELOPING PERSONNEL ACCESSION AND RETENTION PLANS, FOR CAREER FIELD MANAGEMENT AND RESTRUCTURING, FOR TRAINING PLANNING, AND FOR INSTRUCTIONAL SYSTEMS DEVELOPMENT.
