I. INTRODUCTION

ANPOWER is a term which means a group of person

who has acquired some particular skill or expertisation

to undertake a particular type of job. In the national level

human resources development is an important aspect of study

and the manpower planning has to be done taking into

consideration the dynamic of manpower availability and

requirements. With advancement of civilization, science and

technology, manpower is required to deal with complex

problems of varying nature in different areas of real life, of

course required with specialization and skill. All these

associated problems of manpower requirements warrant a

systematic approach to the study of manpower planning. The

industrial and administrative environment and structure

largely contribute to the socio-economic welfare of any nation.

The availability of appropriate type of manpower is an

important factor that contributes to the task force available for

the completion of planned jobs and projects including

industrial production. The rapid advancement of science and

technology has thoroughly changed the conventional

requirements of manpower to complete the jobs. It is in this

context the human resources development has undergone a

rational change over the years. Hence the methods manpower

planning has become more complex as it includes the

determination of the equilibrium of manpower supply and

demands. Mathematical and Stochastic models have been

applied to a large extent for the conceptualization of real life

situations as appropriate mathematical model. Such a process

enables the achievement of solutions, which would be precise

and advantageous. Manpower planning is an interdisciplinary

activity. It requires the combined technical skills of

Statisticians, economists and behavioral scientists together

with the practical knowledge of managers and planners. At

the national level, manpower planning aims to make the best

use of the nations human resources. This involves the attempt

to forecast the demand and supply for people with various

skills and qualifications and to bring them into balance. At the

level of the firm manpower planning deals with problems of

recruitment, wastage, retention, promotion and transfer of

people within the firm and in relation to its environment.

Manpower planning techniques have become an essential tool

for the modern managers, especially in a climate of economic

recession and government cut-backs. Further, manpower

planning is an aspects of human resource management based

on, mathematical and statistical modeling. Loss of manpower

is unpredictable; a suitable requirement policy has to be

designed to overcome this loss. Determination of expected

time to recruitment, and the likely time at which the total

manpower loss reaches a particular level called threshold is an

important aspect. The idea of Shock model and cumulative

damage process introduced by Esary et al., [7]. For a detailed

account of Shock model and cumulative damage process, one

can also refer, Barlow and Proschan [4]. Some interesting

results can also be seen in Thangaraj and Stanley [18]. In this

paper the expected time to recruitment and its variance are

derived by assuming two parameter type I generalized logistic

distribution using the concept of Shock model and cumulative

damage process. The breakdown point at which the

organization crosses the threshold level is also derived. The

analytical results are substantiated with suitable numerical

illustrations.

II. REVIEW OF LITERATURE

The application of stochastic processes is the study of

manpower planning which introduced a new area. The greatest

advantage of application of stochastic processes is that any

real life situation can be conceptualized as a mathematical

model and the optimal solution can be derived by using

standard techniques. It may be observed that if, the initial

solution is not satisfactory, the model can be reformulated and

an improved solution can be derived. The formulation of

suitable policies which would be profitable for the

organizations is achieved by use of stochastic models in

manpower planning.

The policy decisions are taken with inter arrival times

which are i.i.d random variable depending upon the

market environment, production, etc.,

The processes which give rise to policy revisions and

the threshold random variables are statistically

independent.

A. Shock Model and Cumulative Damage Process

The idea of Shock model and cumulative damage process

introduced by Esary et al., [7] is given as follows. Consider a

unit or system that undergoes shocks at random time epochs

and each shock causes random amount of damage to the

system. The damages due successive shocks at random time

intervals cumulate but the system survives. Every system has

a threshold level which is the withstanding capacity of the

system or it is level of maximum allowable damage. When

the cumulative damage crosses the threshold level then the

system breaks down. The survivor function is given by

0 k

S t [Probability that there occurs exactly k shocks

in (0, t][Probability that the device with stands k shocks]. The

survivor function of the lifetime of the device is given by

0

, 0,

that the system surviving k shocks. The assumptions made in

this model are: (i) Each shock causes a random amount of

damage and (ii) Damages on successive shocks are

independent and identically distributed. The properties of the

survivor function are studied based on the properties of k P

when the device has a cumulative shock random threshold

level and maximal shock random threshold level. For a

detailed account of Shock model and cumulative damage

process, one can also refer, Esary et al., [7], Barlow and

Proschan [4].

B. Two Parameter Type I Generalized Logistic Distribution

Balakrishnan and Leung [3] defined the type I Generalized

Logistic Distribution (GLD) as one of the three generalized

forms of the standard logistic distribution. Type I GLD has

received additional attention in estimating its parameters for

practical usage; refer to Balakrishnan [2]. For >0 and >0

the two-parameter Type I GLD has the probability density

function given

And has the cumulative distribution function given by

Where is the scale parameter and is the shape parameter. The

importance of the logistic distribution is already been left in

many areas of human endeavor.

function E

D. Methods of Estimation

In this section different methods of estimation are

discussed. To name a few, maximum likelihood estimation,

method of moment estimators, estimators based on percentiles,

least squares and weighted least squares estimations, L-

moment estimators. For a detailed discussion maximum

likelihood estimation [1], a detailed study an one can refer

methods of moment estimators [21], a detailed study on

estimators based on percentiles [1], a detailed discussion on

least square and weighted least square estimators [17] and one

can also refer on L-Moment estimator [19].

E. Estimation of Expected Time to Recruitment using Shock

Model Approach

Based on the assumption and notations are discussed in

section 2 and section 3, the estimation of expected time to

recruitment using Shock model approach is derived as follows.

If Y be the random variable which has the cumulative density

function defined as

(6)

One is interested in an item for which there is a significant

individual variation in ability to with stand shocks. There may

be no practical way to inspect an individual item to determine

its threshold y. In the case, the threshold must be a random

variable. The shock survival probability are given by

0

i k

P X y g x H x dx

k

g By convolution (7)

Therefore S t P T t is the survival function

which gives the probability that the cumulative antigenic

diversity will fail only after time t.

0 k

P {There are exactly k contacts in (0, t] *P (The

total cumulative antigenic diversity (0, t]}

It may be happen that successive shock become

increasingly effective in causing damage, even though they are

independent. This means that V

k

(t), the distribution function

of the k

th

damage is decreasing in k = 1,2, for each t. A

renewal process is a counting process such that the time until

the first event occurs has some distribution F, the time

between the first and second event has, independently of the

time of the first event, the same distribution F, and so on.

When an event occurs, we say that a renewal has taken place.

It is also known from renewal process that

The two parameter Generalized logistic distribution of the

where U is a uniform

deviate on (0, 1). The software Mathematica can be used to

generate the generalized logistic random variables and for

computing the roots as well as for computing the minimization

or maximization of the related functions. For generating

Uniform deviate an (0,1), the procedure suggested by

Rubinstein [16]) has been used. Since

squares and weighted least square estimators can be obtained

minimizing with respect to only.

For simulation, the algorithm and results suggested by

Karian et al., [10], Gupta et al., [8], Mudholkar et al., [13], can

be used. It is observed from Table 1 the most of the estimators

usually over estimate , except percentiles estimation, which

under estimates in all cases considered. One can also

observe that for each estimation method, the average relative

biases and average relative mean square errors decrease, as the

sample size increases. As far as biases are concerned, the

unbiased estimators are more or less unbiased as expected

and have minimum mean square errors. The percentiles

estimations provide the best results for small sample size

(n=10) while the unbiased estimators work well otherwise.

The weighted least square estimators work better than the

least square estimators in all cases, considered. Clearly, as

sample size increases, the biases and the mean square errors

decrease for all methods. As a consequence of that, all

estimators are asymptotically unbiased and consistent of

when is known. It is observed that the average biases and

mean square errors of these estimators depend on . For all

methods, as increase, the average relative mean square

errors of

decrease. It is also observed that all methods

overestimate , where as percentiles estimation underestimates

in all cases considered.

Comparing the biases, it is observed that percentiles

estimations perform well for small sample size n=10 and for

all values of considered. For moderate or large sample sizes

20 n , percentiles estimations works well. In the sense

of mean square errors, it is observed that percentiles

estimations performed well for sample sizes and for all

choices of s considered. For moderate and large sample

sizes, maximum likelihood estimators work better than other

estimators except the percentiles estimations. The mean

square errors of the weighted least square estimators are

usually smaller than that of the least square estimators where

as the mean square errors of the method of moment

estimators are usually the maximum. Considering all the

points and taking in to the account that percentiles

estimations and method of moment estimators are easiest to

compute and found that percentiles estimation as a good

estimate of .

Comparing the performance of all the estimators, it is

observed that as far as biases are concerned, least square

estimators work the best in almost all the cases considered for

estimating both and . The performances of the weighted

least square estimators are quite close. For small sample size,

the percentiles estimation performs well when compared with

lest square estimator and weighted least square estimator for

estimating . In the sense of mean square estimators it is

clear that percentiles estimations work the best in almost all

the cases considered for estimating both parameters. The

performances of the maximum likelihood estimators are also

quite close to that of the percentiles estimations for estimating

estimations are usually smaller than that of the least square

estimators whereas the mean square errors of the method of

moment estimators are getting larger in most of the cases

considered. Comparing the estimates of the two parameter

generalized logistic distribution using shock model approach

simulation and the empirical distribution sited using two

parameter generalized logistic distribution based on different

estimation methods given table 3 and table 4. For comparison

purposes, we also obtain the K-S distance based on the

maximum likelihood estimators, method of moment

estimators, percentiles estimators least square estimators,

weighted least square estimators

and least square estimators.

Their estimates, K-S distance and the corresponding p-values

are presented. In the sense of means square errors the

asymptotic mean square errors of the above estimators are

computed and presented in Table 4.For the shock model

approach discussed in section 4 using two parameter type I

generalized logistic distribution, the goodness of fit test

suggested by McClean [12] has been discussed.

From table 3, it is observed that the two parameter

generalized

logistic distribution with parameters estimated by

least square estimators provides the best fit.

V. CONCLUSION

The conceptualizations of mathematical and stochastic

model help the process of finding the optimal solutions and

also the implementation of the same. However it is very

important to identify the appropriate probability distribution

that would portray the realities. The identification appropriate

distribution is an important step. Hence the survey method

can help the identification of such distribution. The tests for

goodness of fit of such distribution are real life data is an

important procedure. Once this is taken care of then the

models can be used in solving real life problems.

It is also found that least square estimators weighted least

square estimator perform well when compared with the other

estimators. The performance of the maximum likelihood

estimators are quite close to that of percentiles estimators.

The mean square estimators and method of moment estimators

are large than the other estimators. The existing result shows

more consistent estimates comparing the other estimators

when sample size is sufficiently large. The results show that

the p value is significant and gives netter results is the case of

Shock model approach when compared with the other

estimates. The validity of the numerical results gives only the

best estimates when the real data is collected from the industry

and test for the goodness of fit can be done by validity the

model discussed in the paper.
