Abstract:
This paper deals with workforce planning to present a system dynamics model that allows the user to examine the effects of changes in the workforce planning problems associated with staff recruitment, staff shortages and staff surpluses and to study the behavior of the recruitment staff in the process. The work sets out to investigate the effects on the overall system dynamic behavior of recruit staff in process feedback and lead time variation in real time. Simulations results are presented to illustrate how this model may be utilized to select an optimum training rate by devising appropriate training policy parameters with reference to minimizing training time to achieve target levels for an organization. System dynamics models can be used as a flight simulator by the management to optimize organizational learning interventions such as knowledge creation, knowledge erosion recruitment, training, learning, staff hiring and attrition rates. We anticipate that system dynamics modeling would help the decision maker to devise medium to long term efficient workforce planning strategies. The major contribution of this paper is the development of Automated Pipeline Skill pool Model (APSKPM) as a new methodology of looking at system behavior by real time lead-time variation.

Key Words: Workforce Planning, System Dynamics, Manpower Recruitment, Dynamic Behaviour. Simulation
