Abstract:

The objective of this study is to develop an overall concept of how EPAS optimal guidance would interface with the Army Recruit Quota System REQUEST and certain USAREC recruiting management control procedures. We describe how REQUEST works, i.e. determining the applicants dates of availability, identifying and ordering the MOS and corresponding class start dates from which the applicant can choose. We also describe how EPAS optimal guidance EOG is produced from the solution of the aggregate allocation model, and how an ordered list of MOS class start dates is developed for a specific applicant. We then develop a concept of how the two ordered lists might be merged, guided by the principle of do not affect the steps followed by guidance counselors in their interactions with applicants.
