Abstract

WHEN the Ministry of Aircraft Production drastically reduced the military aircraft programme in 1945, forecasts had to be made of the consequential reductions in labour requirements in the aircraft factories. During the drawnout buildup period, and the period of relative stability in 1944, labour forecasts had been made with somewhat arbitrary adjustments, and not entirely without success, on a pro rata basis. With the end of the war in sight, the forecasters were faced with a programme that showed a reduction of something like 75 per cent in output to be achieved in the course of a few months. Could the pro rata assumption give labour forecasts even approaching the right order of magnitude
