This paper considers the following issues for developing an industry manpower strategy: an idea of the national system that exists for implementing a manpower strategy, the main questions arising from the strategy, and a definition of manpower planning; from this, the information and analysis techniques used to identify the strategy are derived. The first application produces a manpower picture of the foundry industry. For company manpower planning the paper describes a manpower model of a company, and how the relationship between the activity and employment patterns of foundries was investigated. The industry findings are verified by company manpower planning investigations using the same information and techniques. The conclusions discuss some of the strengths and weaknesses of using this approach.
