Description: The article deals with the general content and the main regulations of the concept of substantiation of the troops (forces) staff required for the performance of certain tasks, according to the criterion of “sufficiency of capabilities”. An analysis of existing methods and approaches to determining the required troops and forces staff has shown that they have not yet found their final formulation of the theoretical regulations concerning the substantiation of the troops (forces) staff required for the performance of certain tasks, based on an analysis of their capabilities and selecting a criterion for assessing these capabilities. This necessitates the development of conceptual foundations for defining and substantiating the criteria for assessing the capabilities of the troops (forces) staff required for performance the certain tasks. The principal of conceptual foundations is the developed concept, which defines: the purpose of the substantiation of the troops (forces) staff; tasks that must be solved to achieve the goal; conditions and limitations on the achievement of goals; principles to be followed; order of performance of tasks. The main of which is to determine the criteria for assessing the required capabilities of the troops (forces) staff. In view of the fact that the sufficiency of the necessary capabilities of the organizational unit (element) or the totality of the troops and forces is a determining condition for the effective performance of the certain tasks, the criterion for assessing the required capabilities of the troops (forces) is proposed to adopt an indicator of “sufficiency of capabilities”. The implementation of the regulations of the concept will allow to develop a methodical apparatus in which quantitative assessment methods of sufficiency and shortage (deficit) of capabilities will be implemented, defining ways of compensating capabilities, the shortage of which is critical for the fulfillment of tasks that can be entrusted to the Armed Forces and the definition of the troops (forces) staff which has the necessary capacity to perform the certain tasks, taking into account the sufficiency factor and the chosen way of compensating for the capabilities that are critical.
Keywords: sufficiency of capabilities, quantitative evaluation, concept, principles, components of capabilities, capabilities.
