A note on a continuous-time Markov manpower model

  • G. S. Davies (a1)

Abstract

We examine a Markov manpower system in continuous time where demotion rates are 0 and promotion rates are time-dependent. The transient and limiting behaviours of the model are discussed, and illustrated with examples.
