Within the Canadian Department of National Defence, a prototype civilian workforce simulation model was developed for the modelling and analysis of one particular occupational group, the Purchasing and Supply PG Group. The model was developed to explore workforce modelling techniques for the civilian workforce with the intention of potentially modifying it for analyses of other occupational groups, and eventually producing a generic civilian occupational group modelling capability. This paper outlines the methodology, the determination of occupational characteristics for modelling purposes, preliminary occupational analysis, lessons learned, and a possible way forward for the workforce modelling of civilian groups.
