Abstract
Recently, the Personnel Operational Research Team (PORT) was asked to develop a tool for assessing the resource implications of supporting compliance with the Bilingual Officer Corps Policy. Compliance will mean the injection of training modules to overcome the current and anticipated shortfalls from prescribed targets in the second language proficiency in senior officer ranks. With readily available supporting data, the tool developed allows the sponsor to design a program for assigning training modules to rank, ability and experience cohorts, and to evaluate its cost and its efficiency in reducing shortfalls over time. This evaluation tool is designed in Vensim, a package for developing systems dynamics models. This report outlines the processes represented in the model, its supporting data and typical user interaction. Several system performance measures appropriate to the compliance issue are illustrated. Applications in other training assignment and population representation analyses are also suggested.
