                 Planning workgroup developed, trained,
                 and deployed the Tri-Service tool
                 throughout the MHS. The tool uses
                 volumes of data from the EASIV
                 repository to assist MTFs in determining
                 capacity of providers. The focus of our

                 how MEPRS/workload data is used in
                 forecasting workload demand and
