Navy-wide Personnel Survey (NPS) : population statistics for Navy parents and children by Jessica Janega( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Knowing the demographics of Navy personnel is key to creating good personnel policies. When this information is not readily accessible in existing databases or is inaccurate, estimates based on survey data are used. The Navy-wide Personnel Survey (NPS) is one survey that can provide such estimates; this technical note provides estimates of family demographics based on the 2003 NPS. Results show that in 2003 there were almost as many Navy children as there were active duty Navy personnel, with 35 percent of the children between 0 and 4 years old, 33 percent between 5 and 11 years old, and 32 percent between 12 and 21 years old
Technology review of multi-agent systems and tools( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document provided a review of current intelligent multi-agent technologies. It presents agent frameworks and agent construction toolkits available in the market today. The Navy Web-based Marketplace is a suitable environment for intelligent multi-agent technologies, where a distributed peer-to-peer process is the essential model with inter-agent communications and coordination. Reasoning with rules of thumb and heuristics are currently common practice as commands define their preferences and detailers make job assignments. This report provides recommendations for agent system development, agent framework, inference engines, and agent construction toolkits. A high-level system architecture is proposed to meet Navy Web-based Marketplace functional requirements. There are three major components of the proposal: (1) a web services-based, front-end at the presentation layer that provides friendly access for sailors, commands, detailers, and counselors; (2) a workflow layer that provides support for business processes of the various user groups; and (3) an intelligent agent layer that provides the framework through which the agents communicate and negotiate for optimal matches between available Navy jobs and sailors
Navy-wide personnel survey (NPS) 2003 : summary of survey results by Kimberly Whittam( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 2003 Navy-wide Personnel Survey (NPS) was administered in January - May of 2003 to a stratified random sample of approximately 14,000 active duty personnel. The NPS focuses on work-related issues such as job satisfaction, morale, leadership, advancement, promotion, career progression, and detailing and provides Navy leadership with valuable information regarding sailors' perceptions of Navy work life. The 2003 NPS was conducted under the sponsorship of the Chief of Naval Personnel (CNP). The results of the survey were provided to the CNP in June of 2004. Responses were weighted to allow generalization of the results to the general Navy population. This report contains a narrative description of the results of the survey. In addition, this report provides analysis of the results between major Navy groups (i.e., officers, enlisted, married, single, etc.)
Impact of social presence on focus group success by Murrey G Olmsted( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As computers and alternatives of communication become more widespread, researchers are beginning to turn to new approaches to conduct data collection. A frequently used technique for collecting preliminary data or follow-up research is focus groups. The present study compared two types of computer-based focus groups with traditional face-to-face focus groups. The two type of computer-based focus groups utilized a chat room environment and laptop computers to facilitate the discussions. The two computer conditions included one in which participants could see and hear each other (computer-mediated) and another in which barriers and noise-cancelling headphones blocked such access to social cues (Internet-simulated). The conditions were designed such that the face-to-face condition would have the highest social presence, the .computer-mediated would have a moderate level of social presence, and the Internet-simulated would have the lowest social presence. It was believed that the level of social presence would have a significant impact on the level of participation, participant satisfaction, as well as the quantity and quality of the data. A total of 27 focus groups were conducted over two weeks during the spring of 2002 at the Combat Systems and Engineering "A" Schools of the Naval Training Center Great Lakes. Results indicted that differences were found in the number of words used to communicate in the three conditions; however, similar levels of participation, satisfaction, quantity, and quality of participation were obtained for each condition. In contrast to what was expected, social presence did not distinguish between the different conditions. Overall, the results indicted that conducting computer-based focus groups can be done in a successful manner and can achieve similar results to that typically found in traditional face-to-face methods
Results of the Navy Quality of Life Survey by Gerry L Wilcove( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 2002 Navy Quality of Life (QOL) Survey was designed to: (1) determine sailors' overall satisfaction with QOL in the Navy and with specific professional and personal domains, (2) compare results with those of 1999, and (3) examine the relationship between QOL and sailors' continuance plans. A Navy-side random, stratified sample was drawn. Data were weighted to ensure that results would accurately generalize to the Navy population. The survey results indicated that a majority of enlisted were satisfied in all QOL domains except shipboard life and standard of living/income. A majority of officers were satisified in all QOL domains. Enlisted and officers were notably more satisified in 2002 than in 1999 regarding overal QOL and the shipboard life, standard of living/income, and leisure and recreation domains. For enlisted and officer non-careerists (sailors with 10 or fewer years of Navy service), continuance plans were most highly correlated with satisfaction with military life (vs. other measures of QOL). Satisfaction with military life was, in turn, most highly correlated with shipboard life

Efficient mechanisms to allocate assignment incentives in the Navy by R. Wesley Nimon( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1973, the United States Navy moved from being a consctiption force to being an all-volunteer force. All assignments, however, may not necessarily be voluntary. These assignments (jobs) have been labeled as "hard-to-fill" by Navy leadership, and the Navy has implemented market-based, cash stipends to attract Sailors to these jobs. An auction has been determined to be the method used for distributing the stipends. The current format of the auction is often described as a first-price sealed-bid, but it is actually a multi-attribute auction, since the lowest bidder for an assignment may not receive it due to other factors considered in the assignment process, such as skills match, timing, moving costs, etc. This report investigates various auction formats with respect to efficeincy, suitability, and feasibility

Cognitive agent technologies project : knowledge engineering study by Ken Robinson( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report details the result of a knowledge engineering study to determine how the Navy enlisted detailer functions today. It is groundwork for defining the types of interactions necessary in a future automated detailing process supported through the use of software agents. The focus is on the detailer and how this person interacts with data and human resources to finally select a particular Sailor to fill an assignment requisition. It describes a brief overview of the overall distribution system, but focuses on the detailer who negotiates to satisfy Navy policy, prioritized requisition needs, and Sailor preferences and career objectives

Delayed entry program attrition : survey results by Marian E Lane( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Navy's Delayed Entry Program (DEP) allows individuals to delay their entry into the Navy for up to one year after signing an enlistment contract. However, the DEP loses approximately 18 percent of its contracts before they ever reach initial recruit training. In the past, it has been argued that attrition from the DEP is better than attrition from initial training, when more time and money have been invested. The underlying assumption is that individuals who attrite from the DEP would not have been successful in recruit training anyway and are therefore less costly than training losses. This leads to a management policy of allowing DEP attrition to continue at relatively high levels. However, there is no evidence to support the assumption that all DEP attrition is "wanted" attrition of recruits who would fail to be successful in training or, subsequently, in the Fleet. To date, very little knowledge exists concerning the reasons why an individual chooses to leave the DEP. The current project was undertaken to more fully understand the reasons behind DEP attrition, and the factors that might affect the propensity to attrite, which could lead to the development of programs or services to reduce attrition
Human resources officers' role in supporting fleet operational requirements by L. Andrew Jones( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The United States Navy's Human Resources (HR) officer community was established to bridge a divide between government civilian HR professionals, many of whom lack an appreciation of operational requirements, and unrestricted line officers, many of whom lack familiarity with HR theory and large-scale human resources management. Anecdotal evidence suggests that there is a gap between what HR officers provide to operational forces and what unrestricted line officers believe HR officers can and should provide. Moreover, there is evidence to suggest that Human Resources officers' role in supporting fleet operational requirements do not meet unrestricted line officers' expectations. This study attempts to quantify and articulate this split. This research attempts to enumerate these perceptions and draw conclusions about unrestricted line officers' perceptions of the role of Human Resources officers in supporting fleet operational requirements
Navy-wide Personnel Survey (NPS) 2008 : summary of survey results by Kimberly P Whittam( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The 2008 Navy-wide Personnel Survey (NPS) was administered September 2007 through January 2008 to a stratified random sample of approximately 16,000 active duty officer and enlisted Sailors. The NPS focused on work-life topics, such as Sailor demographics, leadership satisfaction, organizational commitment, performance evaluations, morale, detailing, assignments, job characteristics, job satisfaction, career development, availability of resources, gender integration, and overall satisfaction with Navy life. Responses were statistically-weighted to allow for generalization of sample results to the entire Navy active-duty population."
Surface warfare officer community management model : systems dynamics proof-of-concept by Rodney S Myers( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This system dynamics model was developed to analyze and discern the factors which lead to sustainable numbers of qualified surface warfare officers (SWO) as determined by current and future end-strength requirements and readiness goals. The analysis considered the effects of proposed bonus or separation incentives, other compensation, and quality of life on the quantity of retention and accessions. The model considers all major aspects of manning from initial accessions, training, distribution, and retention. This model serves as a successful proof-of-concept for the utility of system dynamics modeling to realistically model SWO community management functions
An experimental analysis of the relative efficiency of alternative assignment auction formats by R. Wesley Nimon( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To induce sailors to volunteer for hard-to-fill assignments the Navy employs an auction. With respect to the optimal assignment auction format ; however, there is only very limited academic literature. To match sailors with qualified bidders, non-bid factors must be reflected in the assignment. The greater the weight placed on those factors, the lower the weight placed on the bid and hence the weaker the sailor's incentive to bid near his reservation wage. This requirement precludes the implementation of an incentive compatible assignment auction (Leonard, 1983). This report relaxes the assumption that the bid amounts alone determine the assignment set and experimentally estimates the efficiency reductions associated with decreased bid weights. The estimated elasticity of payment to changes in the bid weight in a low-contention, first-price auction, with a bid weight of 10% is -0.34. The effect of the contention level (i.e., the ratio of bidders to jobs) is identified as well. A third consideration is whether a first or a Modified Vickrey-Leonard (VL) auction offers smaller efficiency reductions when the assumption of 100% bid weight is relaxed
