Abstract:

A new algorithm for multi-attribute assignment models is presented. Built around the concept of a biased quadratic objective, it proceeds via a sequence of related assignments. Optional stopping is applied when an approximation to the optimum assignment is identified. A second part of the paper deals with manpower planning and organization designs which interact dynamically. A spectral analysis approach is used to obtain estimates of career patters and aspirations in terms of observed and potential transition problems. Goal programming approaches are used in both parts of the paper.
