Hi, did someone ever solve this problem using matlab? can explain to me how this problem can be solve by using optimization toolbox? some example in GUI or m-file is greatly appreciated..
The problem is how to find a schedule that both respects the constraints.Conventionally a nurse can work 3 shifts because nursing is shift work: 1.day shift 2.night shift 3.late night shift 4.Free time (after she done 3 times late night shift in that week)
In this problem we must search for a solution satisfying as many wishes as possible while not compromising the needs of the hospital. Some examples of constraints are:
-A nurse doesn't work the day shift, night shift and late night shift on the same day (for obvious reasons). -A nurse may go on a holiday (Free time) and will not work shifts during this time. -A nurse doesn't do a late night shift followed by a day shift the next day
