Abstract:

This study was conducted to develop a methodology for determining manpower requirements based on workload factors. Actual time for task accomplishment and actual daily workload performed for customer service, stock accounting, and cost accounting sections of the Materiel Distribution Service were recorded. Two manpower prediction formulas, one based on time for task accomplishment and the other on workload accomplished, were derived from the data. A significant difference was found between the predicted manpower requirements. The author concluded the formula based on workload was a better predictive tool due to its inclusion of the minor tasks accomplished that were not measured by the task accomplishment model. Keywords Manpower utilization Health care Manpower management.
