Abstract:

The purpose of the Navys enlisted advancement system is to ensure qualified personnel are promoted to fill petty officer vacancies while at the same time providing ample career promotion opportunities. Advancement flows must be precisely geared to filling vacancies in the top six pay grades of some 100 occupational specialties under conditions of changing manpower resources and requirements. Because of the large number of data manipulations, and the tradeoffs required, enlisted advancement planning was considered to be a prime candidate for the application of computer technology. A set of programs for computerized enlisted advancement planning have been designed to provide a broad data base for operational as well as high level policy decisions relative to planning and controlling the force of petty officers.
