This paper examines the attainability problem in a graded manpower system, where the objective is to maximise the total throughput. The problem is modelled as a linear programming problem LPP and the evolution of structures in the system is described using the Markov chain model. The decision variables are the promotion rates. Results from the LPP provide a guide to the administrative authority of the system on how promotion and retrenchment should be implemented. The utility of the model is demonstrated using a university setting in Nigeria.
