This thesis examines the Marine Corps' permanent change of station (PCS) move model used to forecast PCS budgets - programmed in the Interactive Financial Planning System (IFPS) of Execucom Corporation. This thesis further reviews several recommendations by the Center for Naval Analyses (CNA) for improvement of the PCS move model and develops data to implement those recommendations. Finally, the thesis reviews Computer Sciences Corporation's LOTUS and DBASE version of the PCS move model which incorporates the methodologies programmed within the IFPS software, CNA's recommendations, and the data developed within this thesis. Several shortcomings and recommendations are presented for further development of the Marine Corps' PCS move model.
