Abstract : Previous manpower planning models have utilized multi-period Markoff processes embedded in goal programming (multiple objective) models. These are here extended to Equal Employment Opportunity plans directed to changing the mix of employees over time. At each point in the planning interval, the organization is taken as given, e.g., in terms of the probabilities for promotion, transfer, etc. Over time, however, these organization processes are submitted to planned changes which alter the probabilities of occurrence for these events. The focus here is on an ordinary (absolute value) formulation of objectives, and a numerical illustration is supplied with differing weights for each of the indicated classes of objectives.
