Abstract
This paper documents the Human Resources (HR) modelling support provided by the Personnel Operational Research Team (PORT) in support of the Military Occupational Structure (MOS) Review with respect to an impact assessment of whether or not rank inversion threatens the sustainability of affected occupations. Each instance of rank inversion has been examined using appropriate analytical models and available HR data. Affected Military Occupations (MOCs) have been classified in one of the following categories: a. MOCs which have little or no systemic sustainability problems in the inversion ranks and which should not require any remedial action (GREEN); b. MOCs which have short term or intermittent sustainability problems which may require remedial action (AMBER); or c. MOCs which have severe sustainability problems and definitely require remedial action (RED).
