Abstract : The report describes the development and operational test of a computerized personnel distribution model designed to simulate the distribution functions of the Pacific Fleet Enlisted Personnel Distribution Office (EPDOPAC). This model consists of the Sort-Match model, which is designed to perform the function of screening personnel made available to the EPDO by BUPERS, and the Quota Determination model which equitably allocates to the type commands those personnel who are not assigned by the Sort-Match model. The report also describes other current research concerned with personnel assignment, prediction techniques, policy-testing techniques, and personnel rotation. Some description is also presented on long range research plans which include development of a completely integrated all-Navy Personnel Assignment, Distribution, and Rotation model (PADRO model), automation of certain other aspects of the distribution and assignment system, development of a fleet personnel data bank, and the design of an information retrieval model.
