1.0 Modeling the Organisation's Salary Policy.

Consider for example six jobs in a company. The size of the jobs (as measured by job points) and the total annual salary paid to the jobholders are as follows:

Table 1

Job Job Points Annual Salary
A 1,200 170,000
B 900 150,000
C 750 100,000
D 500 85,000
E 300 60,000
F 200 40,000

A chart can be drawn showing the relationship between job size and salary for this company, as follows:

Chart 1

As we would expect, the chart shows that total pay increases as jobs get 'bigger'. Our next step is to quantify the relationship between job points and salary for this company.
