Strategy for Enlisting Lateral Entrants via Computer Technology (SELECT): An Automated System for Determining Rating and Pay Grade Qualification for Potential Navy Lateral Entry Accessions.
Hamovitch, Marc A.; Baker, Meryl S.
SELECT is a system designed to streamline the process of determining proper ratings and assigning pay grades to potential Navy lateral entry accessions, i.e., the enlistment of personnel with the appropriate training and qualifications as petty officers. It uses a cross-reference index to convert civilian occupations to Navy ratings that was developed in both manual and computerized versions. Qualification is based on training and/or work experience, physical and security characteristics, and separately developed skill tests. This report includes a summary of the problem, background and purpose of the project, a description of the system, and the recommendation that SELECT be evaluated in a context that requires users of varying sophistication to determine appropriate Navy ratings for applicants from a wide variety of civilian occupations. Appendices provide a brief description of APL functions, global variables, documentation of APL functions used in the computer versions, and the SELECT guide for both manual and computer procedures. Six references are listed. (Author/LMM)
