Abstract:

CLASP Classification and Assignment with PRIDE, the optimal- sequential assignment model currently used to assign recruit applicants to entry-level Navy rating, lacks the ability to assess the quality of personnel assignments from a Navy attrition standpoint. Thus, this research was conducted to 1 develop an attrition component for use in the CLASP model, and 2 evaluate its performance characteristics. Judgmental data obtained from subject matter experts were used to determine a mathematical representation of the policy underlying decision-makers judgments, hereafter called the attrition component. A simulation program was developed to generate personnel assignments to ratings using either of two models one including only the existing five CLASP components, and the other also including the attrition component. Performance comparisons of the two models showed that 1 they were virtually identical with respect to assignment efficiency, and 2 the augmented model yielded higher average utility values.
