The Development of a Computer Assisted Distribution and Assignment (CADA) System for Navy Enlisted Personnel.
Whitehead, Randall F.; And Others
This report describes the development of a computerized system to assist Navy personnel managers in carrying out the functions associated with the distribution and assignment of enlisted personnel. This Computer Assisted Distribution and Assignment (CADA) System is aimed at the most efficient interaction between the computer and human manager to help maximize the effectiveness of the distribution and assignment decision-making process. In general, the CADA System will broaden the range of assignment alternatives for each man and billet; expand the number of decision criteria considered; and be more responsive to changes in the personnel and operational situation. Although the CADA System design outlined in this report is, from an operational standpoint, oriented toward application in the Pacific Fleet Enlisted Personnel Distribution Office, the basic conceptual and functional framework of the design has general application throughout the distribution and assignment system and to the Atlantic Fleet in particular.
