Abstract:

The paper describes, compares and contrasts two mathematical models of personnel movement through a hierarchical organization. The first model is a Markov chain type which is described in detail in other literature. The emphasis in the paper is on a cohort model based on peoples lifetime behavior in the system. Data from student enrollments are used in comparing the models, and predictions are made and compared with actual numbers.
