Abstract : The report describes the operation and use of Program OPERATE, the sixth part of Project COMPASS, a Computer Assisted Classification and Assignment System. Program OPERATE and its necessary accompaning parts are FORTRAN Computer programs and subroutines. Program OPERATE selects and assigns to a naval recruit, if possible, a naval school. Selection is done by means of a modified version of the transportation algorithm applied to test battery scores. The program then punches out an assignment card. It is to be used in conjunction with Program LOCNEC, Technical Bulletin STB 66-32, which completes the assignment process by assigning a Navy Enlisted Classification Code, a calendar week code, and a school location code.
