Methodology for the Strategic Capacity Planning in Universities
This paper introduces the Strategic Capacity Planning problem in universities and proposes a methodology for solving the problem. The methodology includes the characterization of the problem, the design of a mathematical model, the data collection and pre-analysis, the model solving and the introduction of uncertainties. Besides the use for staff capacity planning, the methodology can be used to assess the impact that different strategies may have on the personnel costs and structure.
