Abstract:

AAMS Automated Assignment Model for Sailors is an automated model for the assignment of sailors to billets in the Pakistan Navy. The model will be used in an integrated allocation process. AAMS is a personnel assignment decision support system. It takes into account the personnel attributes such as trade, rate skill level, current duty station area data of availability for assignment and individual preference for next duty stations. It has a pre processor Fortran program, which compares the personnel attributes with those of job vacancies and develops cost coefficients for various policy criteria. These coefficients are governed by the eligibility rules and the degree of mismatch. A non pre emptive technique is employed to solve the network formulation using the GAMS solver. The optimal criteria is based on minimizing the total cost incurred due to mismatches in rates, trades, time of availability, failure to meet personal preferences and permanent change of station costs.
