Main Article Content


Purpose: In the modern era, the number of technical colleges increases rapidly due to the huge growth of the students. But the number of teachers is less compare to the number of students. So, there is a need for optimization of manpower in the institutes.

Methodology: In this paper, mathematical optimization is used with the help of linear programming by using permanent, contractual, and adjunct faculties with the help of three objectives for the engineering department, general department, and non-teaching staffs.

Main Finding: Finally, the outcome of the paper is different optimal values for three stated objectives.

Implication: The proposed method is the mathematical formulation of the optimization in a technical institute.

The novelty of Study: This paper deals with a mathematical model of manpower problem. A sample problem has solved to illustrate the procedure.
