Formulation of Management Science Models for Selected Problems of College Administration. Final Report.
Fox, Karl A.; And Others
The objectives of this project were (1) to select those problems faced continually by department chairmen, deans and college presidents, which relate to the efficiency with which educational resources are used, (2) to state essential features of these problems in mathematical form and identify their mathematical structures with management science models used in other fields, and (3) to apply the appropriate solution methods to synthetic models of academic departments, divisions, or small colleges. The approach taken includes (1) a logical formulation, (2) a mathematical formulation based on management science concepts, (3) the construction of a non-trivial example based on academi c organization and staffing patterns, teaching loads, salary levels, and (4) the completion of one or more sequences of calculations showing how management science techniques would improve the results of resource allocation or decision-making process over specified conventional or traditional procedures. The report emphasizes three models which should be useful aids to resource allocation and other major decision processes in educational institutions. (BC)
