A US Air Force (USAF) dataset containing 6 attributes and over 400,000 funded authorizations (paid workforce positions) is analyzed for significant manning relationships among 12 Service Core Functions (SCFs) and 32 functional areas. The authorizations are collapsed into 375 groups of 32 functional equities ranging from Acquisitions to Weather career fields. The SCFs are managed by 7 Core Function Leads (CFLs) who are typically Major Command (MAJCOM) commanders. Logistic fit analyses via logistic odds ratio (OR) comparisons and contingency table analyses reveal significant manning shortfalls in all 12 CFLs. The results of the analysis hope to better inform the USAF Strategic, Planning and Programming Process (SP3). The SP3 is a Chief of Staff of the Air Force (CSAF)-approved framework that guides strategic decision making.
