Assignment Procedures in the Air Force Procurement Management Information System.
Ward, Joe H., Jr.; And Others
An overview is presented of the procedure for offering jobs in the Air Force Procurement Management Information System (PROMIS), an assignment system which makes possible the use of human resources research findings to improve individual personnel assignments. A general framework for viewing personnel assignment systems is presented; then job offering approach is described, involving the estimation of the value to the Air Force of each possible person-job assignment. The pay-off values generator is described including consideration of the interaction between the person's aptitude and the job aptitude requirement, the predicted technical school success, the aptitude area preference, the rate of job fill, and the percentage of jobs filled by minorities. The Allocation Index, used for ordering the opportunities list of jobs and based on a Decision Index, is also described. (Author/CMV)
