Abstract:

The open problem of establishing an accurate adjustment formula for the Brogden 1959 table used in estimating assignment benefits is solved by taking a distribution-theoretic approach in the case of equally correlated jobs. This approach establishes a more sound adjustment formula which provides more accurate results than the formula provided by Alley Darby 1994. Implications for the use of the adjusted table in the case of correlated jobs is discussed.
