Title Modeling the 2008 Manning Study for the 618th Tanker Airlift Control Center (TACC).
Publication Date Jun 2012

Abstract In October of 2008, a Capability-Based Manpower Standard report was released for the 618th Tanker Airlift Control Center (TACC). This report describes each task and its applicable man-hours for every department in the TACC. Depending on how many missions are planned and the number of missions that are actually executed, this gives each department an idea of how many man-hours (people) it needs to accomplish its mission. Using the 2008 standard, this study developed some very useful models that the 618th TACC can use to determine how many people it needs to perform its mission successfully. There are several man-hour equations set forth in the 2008 study. However, they are not in a useful format, which makes them difficult to use and comprehend. This study puts all of the equations in a Microsoft (MS) Excel format, so that all TACC leaders have to do is insert their mission data in the applicable fields. This will result in a display that shows how many people they need. After loading the equations into MS excel, the author added mission data from FY10, FY11, and 6 months of data from FY12 (through end of March 2012) into the models. The models are expected to be very useful, although sufficient testing must be done before they are given to TACC leadership to implement.
