The problem of human resource allocation among design projects in an organization was studied. Four types of human resources are considered, and each project is composed of six different types of tasks. An effectiveness matrix is derived by linking the productivity of each type of human resource to each task as compared with other human resources. The problem was formulated as a Linear Programming Model to obtain an optimal mix of human resources. Optimality is defined as the minimum total design cycle time.
