The purpose of OPMS-ARNG and OPMS-USAR is to effectively and efficiently manage assigned officers through the personnel pro­ponent life cycle development models. The effective implementation of the RC OPMS increases the effectiveness and professionalism of the USAR and ARNG officer corps by producing officers who meet the same qualifications as their Active Component counterparts, and who are able to perform effectively in their branch or functional area as a part of the Total Army team. All branches and functional areas in the Active Component under OPMS XXI are open to the Reserve Component and are reflected in the RC force structure. One variance from the AC implementation of OPMS XXI is the Career Field designation process which requires modification to accommo­date ARNG/USAR unique personnel management considerations.
