A multi-grade deterministic-trainee inventory model with a constant demand is considered in this paper. A Manpower inventory model where in the trainees are trained at a constant rate and are inspected at regular intervals of time. Inefficient persons are identified and retrained to bring them to the expected level of efficiency. The single trainee cost is assumed to be a function of trainee rate. We formulate a generalized single trainee cost function, which brings flexibility in deciding the number of persons to be trained over a training period. The objective of this paper is to obtain Mult-Grade Economic Trainee batch-size that minimizes the total cost function. The model solution is justified through a numerical example.
