In this paper, a stochastic programming problem for scaling measures similar to Likert's format is developed. The objective function is formulated with a view of maximizing the expected decision making score. The constraints are designed with minimum expected decision score and with minimum targeted precision. The very objective of this problem is to find the decision variables of finding the optimal handled number of assignments by a manager in different categories. While developing the

Sensitivity analysis is carried out with the numerical outputs after solving the derived NLPP using a mathematical software LINGO.
