    A probability approach for accounting for uncertainties in the duration of activities in a PERT network is proposed. The effects of a delay in an activity on related activities are considered. They are incorporated in a stochastic network which permits a more realistic and comprehensive estimate of the time needed for executing a project. A sensitivity analysis indicates and evaluates the critical... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a methodology that will aid in determining to what extent internal upwards movement should take place in an organization. The methodology helps in evaluating the turnover that results or is avoided if certain manpower policies are adopted. The methodology is based on the theory of Markov chains. Specific results indicate whether the organization should stress internal training ... View full abstract»
