The management personnel at the Naval Air Rework Facility, North Island Naval Air Station, San Diego, California, are currently faced with two difficult planning problems inherent in any large industrial concern. These are the inability to smooth out the workload so that it may be considered constant over a specific period of time and the determination of the optimal utilization of the direct labor force in order to produce the workload and minimum dollar wage cost. Assuming a constant workload, a mathematical model of this utilization problem, incorporating constraints and restrictions placed upon NARFSD by various agencies, is developed which can be solved as a minimal cost flow-with-gains network problem. By varying the constraint and restriction limits, several alternative manpower utilization options and their related costs are examined. Finally, various methods of smoothing variable workloads are suggested.
