Abstract:

A recursive multi-page assignment model is developed for effecting officer rotations in the U.S. Navy. Promotions and retirements are explicitly taken into account, just as in the earlier papers which are here extended to include other rotation-assignment processes and to accession of new officers. The developments used provide a structural form which is amenable to efficient computational procedures even for the dynamic case and an uncoupling approach is also developed which allows further simplification and improvements in efficiency. This is accomplished in part by a transformation which takes the goal programming model with Markov transition probabilities into a rim adjustment solution process. Numerical examples are provided which illustrate the general case by reference to 2-period 3-officer classes rotations that involve assignments to both sea and shore duties. Author
