Workforce Enterprise Modeling 2007-01-3834

Currently, many factors influence the NASA Kennedy Space Center (KSC) workforce. These factors include the drive for return to flight, a Shuttle Program end date of 2010, and the Vision for Space Exploration which calls for the development of a new launch vehicle. Additionally, external factors exist as well, such as the area's cost of living, the availability of skilled resources, and the unemployment rate affect the overall workforce climate. To manage the human capital in a manner consistent with safety and mission success, and to strategically position NASA KSC to execute its future mission, it is necessary to understand how all of these different influencing factors work together to produce an overall workforce climate. We have been using System Dynamics models in order to capture some of these factors. These system dynamics models are also the starting point of agent-based models.
