Abstract:

This pilot study computer simulation captures the contributions of inexperienced and experienced personnel to overall organizational effectiveness at the Aeronautical Systems Division. The model is appropriately responsive to changes in experience level, SPO leadership, priority, funding, and other factors. Given a fixed number of total personnel authorizations and a fixed percentage of inexperienced personnel, the model indicates that assigning the inexperienced to lower priority SPOs results in a maximum organizational measure of effectiveness MOE. It also shows that an assignment policy based upon both priority and funding level may have only small impact upon this high MOE. Similarly, assigning all of the inexperienced to the high priority SPOs results in a relatively low MOE. Improving the SPO leadership increases the value of the MOE, but cannot compensate for high percentages of inexperience. The model can also assign SPO directors. Author
