What is the purpose of this survey? How and where you are going to use this information?
Manpower planning and development is also known as human resource planning. This process is an essential cornerstone in the efficient management of personnel in an organization. It may be multi-step process, including various issues, such as:
(A) Deciding goals or objectives
(B) Auditing of the internal resources
(C) Formulation of the recruitment plan
(D) Estimating future organisational structure and manpower requirements
(E) Developing a human resource plan

In case you want to increase your productivity or planning expansion. you have to calculate per person output. now keeping the targets you want to achieve you have to increase the manpower as required.
There cannot be a general example of manpower planning as it is enterprise specific. However some general guidelines can include :
1) Assessment of work load department wise;
2)Technological interventions in practice.The more automated the processes are, the less manpower you require.Check this whether your estb. has plans to automate processes.
3)Skill standards of employees.
4)Future business plans;
5)No.of retirements in future.
6) rate of attrition in your company;
7)probable leave vacancies to be manged;
These are some factors that have bearing on your manpower planning

Dear Ranjitha4 ,
your question is very good and sweet. sweet so, because whole of the org. depend on humman resource planning. it just depend upon the org. demond .you could under stood it a small example.suppose you run a small shop.your shop customer increased day by day you do not meet out your customer demond a big crowed is gather round your shop to meet out this problem you keep more men to help. this the example of expansion through requirment and demond.
2nd example you want to increase your sale and attract your customer so you plan a better service and put investment to big your shop so the men is also increase .this is also the policy of industry.
thanks a lot for putting such question

Dear Ranjitha,
Actually Manpower planning is not simple tool, couldn't conclude as simple answer.anyhow some basic theory/Strategies will share with you,
- Point 1 : First thing,please Analysis your Production,Manufacturing specimens like how many stations,how many machinery,what is the machine output ratio,Machine Vs Man hours and other comparison of Previous Vs present Vs future year headcount requirements.
- Point 2 : then, Discuss with your Production or other Related team for future/foretasted business and needs.further you have categories the manpower requirement by the way of skill sets (skilled,unskilled or specially skilled and etc).
- finally compare Point 1 and Point 2 notes/data then you may surely get some understandable idea for Manpower Planning like this.
Thanks a lot!
Executive Director.
