Air Force Manpower Requirements and Component Mix: A Focus on Agile Combat Support
Processes for determining U.S. Air Force manpower requirements vary across and within the workforces. The primary focus of this report is on quantitative manpower requirements processes and the extent to which they are validated, coordinated, and consistent. For wartime or deployment needs, this report seeks to determine if a common-sight picture of demands is available, particularly for non-operational, non-maintenance activities referred to as agile combat support. It also explores the qualitative side of personnel requirements.
