Evaluation of the Turkish army soldier recruitment system and a model proposal for the optimization of soldier recruitment system
Item Usage Stats
This study evaluates the Turkish Army recruitment system by measuring the total deviations of personnel inventories from the target value of inventory level. The target inventory level is the average of projected available human source in the next 19 years. In our study we offer a model that minimizes the deviations from the targeted inventory level of soldiers. The study also computes the zero value of total number of deviations for different service time durations in the military with applying different ages for the people of same birth year at the time of recruitment. The results of the study indicate that even without the flexibility of applying different ages, the model always achieves better results than the current recruitment system.
