Abstract
As the Navy and the DOD focus on technology and training to provide a lean, well-trained and capable military response force, it becomes imperative that the occupational training Navy personnel receive is optimally utilized by placing them in jobs utilizing their training to meet fleet mission requirements. Optimized sailor assignments that meet command requirements would better meet the utility function of the labor supplied to match the labor demanded within the labor market, i.e., the optimal match of sailors and command billet qualities. This research provides a quantitative analysis to compare the Navy's current detailing process, to a proposed IT matching algorithm process. The purpose is not to summarily prove that an IT program is better than the current human detailing process, but to demonstrate quantitatively, using an IT matching algorithm, that both sailor and command utilities can be better satisfied. Thus, enhancing Sea Warrior in creating a stable labor market where both the needs of sailors' and commands' are met in support of Sea Power 21 and Joint Vision 2020.
