Abstract : Given an engineer force structure and a set of projects to be completed in a specified time period by the units of the force structure, the problem which is examined is that of efficient utilization of the excess labor in some skills which is likely to be available after completion of the minimum number of projects. A model is developed in terms of a vector maximization problem. This is reduced to a linear programming problem, which is further reduced to a problem which can be solved by algebraic means. A test problem is run and results presented. A suggestion for an additional use of the model is included. (Author)
