Abstract:

The paper discusses the implication of three types of personnel policies on the number of categories of repairmen. These policies are the following Policy I A completely task-oriented personnel policy which assumes in essence that each specialty covers one or more kinds of tasks to perform and that these kinds of tasks do not differ very much over the different specilties Policy II A specialty-oriented personnel policy, which assumes in essence that each subsystem of the equipment to be repaired represents a complex task which can only be performed by highly specialized personnel, Policy III A mixture of the above two policies.
