This thesis introduces the concept of Simplified Person-Job Matching (SPJM) as a means of measuring the effectiveness of the Surface Warfare/Officer Distribution and Assignment process. Data Base analysis of a cohort of officers attending the Surface Warfare Officer Department Head School, their career histories and prospective assignments was performed. Cohort Analysis indicate that : (1) on the average, the current distribution and assignment process is doing a marginally adequate job of matching personnel to available billets, (2) process improvement is recommended in that, 17 of 135 officers had prospective assignments to billets that they held no prior experiences for, (3) SPJM analysis resulted in a 22% improvement for SPJM fit and resulted in no assignment of officer to billet without some related experience. Recommendations include: (1) implementation of consistent personnel policy in relation to assignment and distribution process, (2) provide budgetary funding for next generation Officer Assignment and Information System (OAIS) computer software, (3) incorporate computer program to ensure SPJM is accomplished, (4) utilize future software improvements to merge the somewhat adversarial roles of the Assignment and Placement Officers
