Cost-Benefit Analysis of the Officer Career Information and Planning System. Research Report 1256.
Myers, Roger A.; And Others
A prototype of a computer-aided manpower management and career progression system, the Officer Career Information and Planning System (OCIPS), has been developed to a point at which costs and benefits for its implementation can be estimated. Considering the goals of the Officer Personnel Management System and problems of the Army Military Personnel Center (MILPERCEN) in pursuing those goals, the benefits likely to accrue from the implementation of OCIPS are described. A plan for evolving OCIPS from a prototype to an operational system is devised, and its costs are estimated. Various installation strategies, including various equipment alternatives, are compared. Estimates are also made for the costs of disseminating career information without computers. (KC)
