Abstract:

In a time of downsizing and budgetary constraints the Manpower division of Headquarters, United States Marine Corps, accomplishes its mission to put the right Marine in the right place at the right time with the right skills and quality of life in a variety of ways. Currently, one of the processes that assist the Marine Enlisted Assignments branch is the Enlisted Assignment Model. The current system is not producing the results that are needed and the current managers do not tmst the output. This thesis proposes changes to the EAM user interface, data access, and data storage capabilities to enable the Marine Corps to use the latest information technology to more closely mirror the vision as stated above. With the use of Business Process Reengineering, Process Modeling, and Database Design a prototype is developed to address areas of the current system that can be changed. By using these methods to ensure an appropriate interface with optimization techniques, a complete Decision Support System for manpower assignments can be realized. These changes will empower managers to effectively and efficiently manage, not just monitor manpower readiness in order to meet the challen es of the 2l centurv.
