Abstract : A general framework for viewing personnel action systems was presented. The components considered were: (1) the measurement of both personnel characteristics and job properties; (2) the estimation of values to the military of each possible person-job assignment; and (3) approaches to optimization of the personnel actions, and (4) the importance of constrained choice by member of the system. Attention was given to a method of Policy Specifying through which payoff values are generated and the ordering of lists of proposed personnel actions. The concept of catalytic predictor variables for use in differential classification was emphasized. (Author)
