Abstract:

Present accessioning methods are inadequate for screening and assignment, place clerical burdens upon the recruiter, and provide limited vocational guidance. Therefore, the Navy Personnel Accessioning System NPAS project was initiated to investigate the technical and economic feasibility of automating the functions involved in accessioning recruits and identify the possible benefits to be obtained by automating these functions. As the project progressed, it became apparent that these were two types of accessioning functions those related to person-job matching PJM, which includes applicant screening with adaptive testing, vocational guidance, and assignment prediction, and those related to recruiting management support RMS, which includes data handling, forms generation, and report generation. The objective of this report was to provide an overview of the PJM and RSM subsystems. NPAS provides the conceptual base for making the accessioning process more efficient and effective, using the latest developments in personnel research and computer technology. The applicant-oriented PJM functions would enhance the Navys public image and increase the probability that applicants would enlist in the Navy and convince friends to visit the Navy recruiter. The RMS functions would save recruiter time, reduce clerical error, and facilitate reporting. Author
