Abstract

The authors use simulation as a technique to predict unexplained absenteeism. The model is based on real world data including the probability of the first day of absence and the length of such absence as a function of the day of the week. The results include a prediction of the future pattern of unexplained absence, the size of the standby worker pool to ensure a minimum work force with given confidence, and an estimation of the maximum monetary incentive to be offered in order to modify worker absentee behavior.
