Abstract:

The Navy detailing process is complicated and detailers spend many hours trying to assign sailors to jobs. There are many factors to be considered for each job assignment sailors preferences detailing, commands requirements placement and the numerous policies that affect both sailors and commands, manning priority levels etc. Often this process is fraught with subjectivities, as each resultant job assignment will vary, depending on the detailer making the assignment. It is therefore timely to explore another way of doing business a 2- sided matching process that considers sailors preferences and commands requirements and assigns sailors to jobs in an equitable and fair manner. This new process is better able to cope with the complexities of job detailing and other additional information requirements. This thesis compares the differences between the current detailing system and a 2-sided matching process, and presents the advantages of adopting the latter. This new way of doing business brings about major benefits for large organizations such as the Navy.
