Stochastic Analysis and Applications
One aspect of Manpower Planning is the investigation of wastage and internal transitions for homogeneous groups of employees in a Manpower system. In the relevant literature, the attainability of a desired stock vector was studied under control by recruitment for time-discrete Markov models. These approaches allow choosing a proper recruitment strategy, resulting in an attainable vector most similar to a desired one. In this paper, this problem will be discussed under stochastic assumptions for attainability after one step. Based on fuzzy set theory, a procedure is introduced that allows evaluating and comparing recruitment strategies, resulting in the determination of a most preferable strategy.
