Abstract : A study is reported of the dynamic nature of manpower allocation at a military maintenance depot. The investigation was simulated using some of the basic principles of industrial dynamics. DYNAMO 2 (DYNAmic MOdels) is used as the simulation language. The results of the investigation indicate that, within the given organization, manpower planning and allocation are related to meeting schedule demands and maintaining reasonable levels of cost in producing a product or service. This report also shows that the industrial dynamics technique can be utilized effectively to present various alternatives in manpower planning to management. The basic structure of the model presented may be adapted to a variety of military and industrial systems. (Author)
