Manpower problems of an organization have long been of great concern not only for prediction of the future personnel inventory at different ranks but also for analysing the interaction between states of ranks and indicating chances for promotion. This study is intended to construct and investigate reasonable and tractable models for manpower. That is, models that describe the dynamics of recruitment, advancement, and separation of individuals in a rank-structured system. It is tempting to devise approximate diffusion models for such problems, in order to obtain simple analytical mathematical expressions for quantities of interest.
