The assignment process in an organization of any nature e.g., military plays a crucial role in the level of efficiency and effectiveness achieved by that organization. A well-designed assignment process is a handy tool for decision makers who are charged with fulfilling the organizations goals. This thesis explores the application of two-sided matching theory to the Hellenic Navys assignment process. Three mechanisms Priority Mechanism, Deferred Acceptance mechanism, and Top Trading Cycle Mechanism are chosen and developed, taking into account the magnitude of specific attributes like officers past performance, educational level, experience, assignment preferences, and position requirementspriorities to achieve the most effective matching between officers and positions. Three scoring methods based on mathematical formulas and statistical parameters are used to evaluate the three two-sided matching mechanisms. The results are compared and recommendations are set forth to enable the matching theory to be suitably applied to the Hellenic Navys assignment process.
