Abstract : The objective of this report is to document development efforts to assess the Navy's capability for a personnel geographic stability (PEGS) program. Work to date has focused on a single rating--boiler technician (BT)--with particular attention being given to the complexities of the problem. A set of assumptions were developed to form a homesteading strategy based on considerations of Navy-wide manning balance, CNO priority manning objectives, regional billet structure, and sea-shore rotation equilibrium. Because a significant portion of BT shore billets located outside of fleet concentrations are designated CNO priority 2 (i.e., they must be filled), personnel in grades E-5 through E-9 are allowed to buy their way into the PEGS program by first serving in a CNO priority 2 billet outside their desired PEGS region. Once the initial priority away shore assignment is met, the PEGS participant receives preferential treatment; that is, an attempt is made to give him all future sea and shore duty assignments in a previously agreed upon PEGS region. Results indicate that 42 percent of the E-5--E-9 BT community can be accommodated by the PEGS program while still maintaining an overall Navy-wide manning balance. The results were most sensitive to changes in projected loss rates for PEGS participants. (Author)
