Abstract:

Manpower management has been an issue of increasing concern to most large, complex organizations in recent years. Research organizations have particular difficulties in this area, due to technological changes and long project and training lead times. Government laboratories must deal, in addition, with Civil Service regulations and the dictates of Congress and the Office of Management and Budget. This paper explores several alternative workforce goals planning systems for use in the Naval Laboratory community. The Proposed workforce goals system is comprised of a data base of workforce estimates combined with a generalized information retrieval system for examination and modification of the data base. Its use in conjunction with Shore Activity Manpower Planning System, an aggregate modeling system of the goal programming variety, is explored. Possible management uses of the workforce goals planning system, with examples of appropriate reports, are discussed. Immediate research issues such as the organizational impact of introducing such systems, and future research issues including integrated and conversational applications, are discussed in the final section.
