This thesis demonstrates the feasibility of computerized assignment of Naval enlisted personnel to fleet units. A model is constructed for determining the utility of each man for each possible ship assignment. Then various methods of assignment are investigated to find one which maximizes the summed utilities of assignment. To illustrate its capabilities, the model is then applied to several sample sets of men and ships. The authors conclude that a model of this type should be implemented in the Navy's personnel distribution system.
