Army Distance Learning: Potential for Reducing Shortages in Army Enlisted Occupations

By Michael G. Shanley; Henry A. Leonard et al. | Go to book overview

Appendix A
MEASURING THE EFFECTS OF DL-BASED AND
NON-DL-BASED STRATEGIES ON SHORTAGES
The purpose of this appendix is to conceptually describe the methodology used to answer several key questions in the analysis. The questions our analysis needed to answer were the following:
1. How much will Army personnel inventory increase (at a grade level of detail) from adding 100 new soldiers per year in any of the following ways:
a. as E3–4 reclassifications?
b. as E5 reclassifications?
c. as accessions?
2. How much will Army personnel inventory decrease (at a grade level of detail) from the removal of a standard reenlistment bonus?

Inventory Projection Models

To answer these questions, we used two steady-state Inventory Projection Models (IPMs). The reason for developing two models was the following: One IPM was developed for CMF 67 (aircraft maintenance), one of the occupational groups chosen for further study in the analysis. The other IPM used data for the force as a whole, and it was used to verify that the conclusions we drew about CMF 67 in this report would also apply to the force as a whole. We found that the conclusions reached in this report using IPMs did apply to the force as a whole, as well as to CMF 67.
