Abstract:

The combined effect of a shrinking pool of eligible personnel and an increasing need for high quality accessions makes the Navys recruitment and optimal use of personnel a critical need throughout the ensuing decade. Present accessioning methods are inadequate for screening and assignment, place clerical burdens on the recruiter, and provide limited vocational guidance. Attrition and marginal performance are abetted by cumbersome and inefficient accessioning procdures. The increasing capability and decreasing cost of computer equipment have broadened computer applications to personnel management. The purpose of the Navy Personnel Accessioning System NPAS project was to develop, test, and evaluate a distributed processing, Navy personnel accessioning network. Computer-based personnel assessment and measurement techniques were to be integrated into system designed to serve as a data base management and labor-saving device for the Navy Recruiting Command, assign recruits optimally to Navy ratings and reserve training school seats, provide individualized career information to applicants with fewer support personnel than at present, and improve person-job placement.
