This mobile App calculates projected Final Multiple Scores (FMS) for Navy enlisted Sailors, ranging from paygrades E3 through E6 looking to be advanced to paygrades E4 through E7. A Sailor’s opportunity to advance to the next paygrade is based on two primary factors: vacancies and Final Multiple Score (FMS) standing among peers. The FMS App calculates the advancement formula, giving Sailors a total score based on input of each individual FMS element. The App provides a tutorial for Sailors not familiar with how FMS elements are calculated, and offers helpful information for navigating the Navy Enlisted Advancement System (NEAS). Don’t wait until exam day—Learn about the FMS elements and calculate your projected FMS today!
FMS Tutorial: Provides a step-by-step formula calculation that teaches users about individual FMS elements and input requirements for calculations. FMS elements are: performance mark average, exam standard score, award points, individual augmentee (tour of duty in a congressionally designated combat zone), pass not advanced, service in paygrade, and education.
FMS Calculator: A simple single-screen display that enables users to populate FMS elements with data representing individual accomplishments and other required data. The calculator features dropdown menus and value sliders that allow users to change inputs to explore “what if” scenarios.
Personalize: The FMS calculator is programmed to account for different formulas used at each paygrade, and gives users the ability to display maximum points that can be garnered under each element.
Policy/Guidance: Includes links to specific policy in the Navy Advancement Manual, NEAS naval administrative messages, and helpful Navy-sponsored websites with FAQs and NEAS information.
