Recent studies of 2-sided matching mechanisms have suggested potential benefits for implementation into the Navy enlisted assignment process. The proposed matching process improves the chance of commands and sailors being assigned to a party of choice. The same studies focused on a particular two-sided Deferred Acceptance DA matching algorithm which ensures stable matches, prevents off-the-site trades between the matching parties and upholds integrity of the matching system. Although stable matches are important in a voluntary labor market, the DA algorithm may still favor one party depending on whether the command or sailor biased form of the algorithm is used.
