Abstract:

This thesis introduces a user interactive personnel flow forecasting model, FORECASTER, and demonstrates its use to analyze the effect of the Goldwater-Nichols Department of Defense Reorganization Act on the personnel flow within the Surface Warfare Officer SWO community. The emerging problems of filling joint billets with promotable officers while maintaining the support and readiness of the critical fleet units is quantitatively analyzed with FORECASTER and is the focus of ths analysis. Two proposed personnel flow scenarios to contend with the DoD Reorganization Act are suggested. One establishes a fixed proportion of officers to be sent from at sea billets to joint billets, while the other considers joint education immediately following postgraduate education. The results of these proposals show an increase in joint billet fills while maintaining the fill of critical fleet unit billets.
