Abstract:

This report describes the Tour Optimization for Uniform Readiness TOUR concept and the TOUR II Model. The TOUR concept entails three major principles implementing uniform staffing among like Fleet Marine Force FMF units implementing a tour length policy for unit deployment assignments and advance planning of tour sequences for all first-term Marines. The operational TOUR II Model developed in this project will soon be implemented as part of the Marine Corps Precise Personnel Assignment System PRE-PAS. The TOUR II Model provides 1 the solution to the problem of uneven combat readiness, 2 the only mechanism by which the Marine Corps can effectively respond to DOD Directives reducing PCS costs, and 3 the most important single model driving the overall TOUR process in the TOUR-relevant series of models PRE-PAS.
