Abstract:

An analysis of the U. S. Air Force, Assignment Management System AMS is presented as an effective model that could be adapted by other services and agencies as a viable system for job matching, assignment and management of personnel assets. The military must compete with the civilian market to staff and man an all- volunteer force. There is a critical need to place more emphasis on career development and quality of life issues created by duty assignments requiring frequent and extended family separations due to overseas assignments. Conventional personnel management practices leveraged by technological advances in secure data base management and Internet communications provide an opportunity for the military to more effectively and efficiently assign personnel. The Air Force system was chosen as a mature and well-developed model for a more detailed outcomes assessment and evaluation as presented in this study.
