Abstract:

The purpose of this research was to develop and test a minority fill- rate component for the marine Corps program management module, which governs the allocation of recruits to enlisted program guarantees within the Automated Recruit Management System ARMS. Marine Corps policy directives were used to formulate experimental forms of the utility model component. The resulting component was tested by simulating recruit assignments and assessing model performance characteristics. The results of assignment by model ABM were compared to actual assignment AA results. In 82 percent of the cases, the ABM procedure achieved superior results namely, the minority proportion achieved under ABM was closer to that desired by Marine Corps managerial personnel than that achieved under AA.
