Abstract : The improvement of personnel systems through automatic data processing and operations research is a new field. This report provides an elementary introduction to several operations research techniques, reviews current usage of automatic data processing methods, outlines the research presently being pursued, and presents potential applications in Coast Guard personnel systems. These applications relate to supply, retirement, and training problems. The author recommends that the Coast Guard instigate feasibility studies of automating: (1) enlisted personnel service records; and (2) the system of assigning enlisted personnel to specific billets.
