The assignment of workers to tasks - An example from an academic department
AbstractA description is given of the application of Operations Research techniques to the problem of assigning lecturers to tasks in an academic department. All the steps in the approach are described - from the collection of the data through the building of a mathematical model to the implementation of the solution. Two approaches to obtaining a solution are described. Firstly a heuristic method is shown which can be done with pencil and paper. The solution obtained with this method can be used for implementation, or it can be used as a starting solution for the computer package used for the solution of the mathematical model.
