Application of Systems Analysis to Sheltered Workshops. Organization and Administration of Sheltered Workshops.
Button, William H.
This paper discusses a set of concepts which have been developed for the analysis of the organization and administrative problems which confront sheltered workshops. The concept of systems analysis is introduced to examine the activities of the workshop and to indicate the manner in which the conceptual framework developed may be applied to consideration of the various activities of the workshop, particularly those concerned with allocating resources, producing economic value, and processing disabled individuals in ways designed to increase their vocational performance and potential. The final section is concerned with the complexities of administration created by the fact that the activities of each system are neither totally separate nor totally dependent. (KJ)
