The billet assignment for Training and Administration of Reserves (TAR) officers is normally two to three years. A placement officer determines where the TAR officer's subsequent assignment will be based on the officer's qualifications and billet requirements. This assignment is vitally important because it significantly affects the officer's career opportunities for promotion and command. This thesis describes the design and implementation of a prototype expert database system that enhances the placement officer's ability to efficiently select the optimum billet for each officer. The prototype integrates a rule based expert system with officer and billet databases to produce a list of billets that match an officer's qualifications and desires. A rudimentary prototype of TARPS has already been evaluated in the field. Initial feedback is encouraging. Placement officer recommendations have been implemented into an enhanced prototype, detailed in this thesis
