Abstract : The report describes the development of a computerized system to assist Navy personnel managers in carrying out the functions associated with the distribution and assignment of enlisted personnel. This Computer Assisted Distribution and Assignment (CADA) System is aimed at efficient interaction between the computer and a human manager to help maximize the effectiveness of the distribution and assignment decision making process. In general, the CADA System will broaden the range of assignment alternatives for each man and billet, expand the number of decision criteria considered, and be more responsive to changes in the personnel and operational situation.
