Abstract:

This paper presents computationally efficient specialized procedures for the solution of network models that have been developed to be used in a simulation-based planning tool. This tool aids in the development and assessment of policies that govern the assignment of naval personnel to jobs in the Navy. The simulation of the movement of naval personnel through jobs over a period of time requires the solution of multiple constrained assignment problems necessitating computationally efficient and robust solution procedures. This paper presents the algorithmic frameworks developed to achieve computationally efficient solution of the models for multiple instances of the constituent constrained assignment problem.
