Development Of Manpower System For Enhancement Of Industrial Output Using Mathematical Programming Model

[Full Text]



Dr Onuke Oscar Sunny



Index Terms: Manpower system, demand target, estimate of skill requirement, development of new skills, mathematical programming model.



Abstract: The study dwelt on the problem of developing manpower supply for establishing new industries, more especially, an engineering program for generating the skills required for a refinery project. A mathematical programming model was developed for planning the establishment of a new manpower system such as Nigeria would be establishing in the next several decades. The manpower planning model developed here deals with the problem of how to optimize the process of developing new skills so that they are available as needed during the process of setting up new industries especially in the sector of developing economy. Many developmental projects in the public sector of Nigeria are now leveled up for lack of trained manpower. The method developed, will also estimate the probable availability of skills required and plan to meet the shortfalls if any.
