Personnel across grades/bands and functional areas
In this example we develop a visualization of the organizational structure for a simulated corporation. The simulation are based roughly on industry averages for the pharmaceutical and Medicines Industry as reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. For instance you will see in the table provided below 30% of the personnel in R&D and 25% in manufacturing. These are based on the 31.4% reported in professional and related occupations and the 27.5% reported in production occupations in 2008 by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. However, we acknowledge that what is true for the industry as a whole may not necessarily be true for individual corporations. Further the cascading of these employees through different levels or salary grade/bands in the organization are based on our estimates. A roughly 4 to 5 fold increase in personnel is assumed when we go down a grade. A 10,000 employee corporation was simulated. Eight grade levels are assumed starting with the CEO and going down to CEO-7. The distribution to be charted is in the following table.
