The Officer Distribution Plan (ODP) has been developed by the Navy in an attempt to provide for the most equitable distribution of Officer resources throughout the naval establishment. This thesis demonstrates the feasibility of constructing a linear programming model to represent the U.S. Navy officer personnel system for the purpose of developing the ODP and which can do in minutes what now takes months. Constraints in the model represent officer category limitations, activity configuration and billet eligibility. A measure of billet fill effectiveness is developed through the assignment of penalty cost for perfect fills, imperfect fills, unassigned resources and unfilled and over filled billets based on inventory, requirements and activity priority rating. Two example problems using fiscal year 1969 data are solved to illustrate the technique, The author recommends that a full scale test problem be constructed with an activity configuration which resembles that of the current ODP in order to better estimate the value of this approach to officer personnel planning.
