AbstractManpower, Personnel and Training (MPT) experts must participate in the initial stages of a weapon system acquisition process so that estimates of manpower requirements can be derived early enough to be of use to MPT planners. The Civilian Availability Model (CAM) is a planning tool designed to estimate the availability of qualified workers in the work force to fill the manpower requirements generated by new weapon systems. CAM begins with an estimate of the total military available population and provides the ability to assess the ease or difficulty with which the Air Force will fulfill its recruiting goals in terms of quantity and quality. The procedure is a step by step process to eliminate the uninterested, the medically and morally unfit, and the mentally incapable of military service. CAM provides an opportunity to study this process under various economic, demographic, and institutional assumptions.
