Improving Navy MPTE Studies with Model-Driven Big Data

The Navy uses complex models to help manage its human capital. These models help Navy leadership understand the potential impacts and risks of changes to force structure, policies, and the economy on its future personnel. Some of these models contain a large number of input variables, many of which are uncertain. They also generate an enormous amount of output data. This project will assess the feasibility and benefits of data farming with these models--that is, embedding a chosen N1 manpower, personnel, training, and education (MPTE) tool in an environment that enables efficiently running and analyzing designed experiments over a breadth of input variables, thereby creating model-driven big data. This will enable N1 to better understand and utilize its complex models to support resource and policy decisions that create and shape the future Navy.
