Abstract:

Three analytical models of rotation problems within a multi-location, multi-grade personnel system are developed. The first model demonstrates the interrelations between 1 billet structure, 2 rotation structure and 3 promotion structure, and a decomposable transportation problem is used to determine an optimal rotation pattern and transfer cost while preserving the relations between 1, 2 and 3. Changes in one or more of these three factors are discussed, and the model is used to analyze the effects of such changes on the total transfer cost. Another model examines the problem of transferring personnel between locations and develops a parameterization of the personnel selection process when transfer costs are taken into consideration. The third model examines the problem encountered in searching for qualified people to replace those leaving specified positions. The models, although developed independently, are shown to interrelate on a macroscopic level.
