Title
(EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR PREFERENCE SCHEDULING OF STAFFING RESOURCES
(FR) SYSTEME ET PROCEDE DE PROGRAMMATION PAR PREFENCES DE RESSOURCES DE DOTATION EN PERSONNEL
Abstract
(EN) The invention provides a system and method for scheduling resources. In one respect, embodiments of the invention allow workers to indicate preferences for specific shifts during a planning horizon, within limitations imposed by the scheduling system. Embodiments of the system and method seek to meet all hard constraints, and utilize a flexible scoring technique to minimize the violation of soft constraints. Embodiments also consider the substitution of higher skilled workers in cases where there is an unmet demand for lower skilled workers.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système et un procédé de programmation des ressources. Dans un aspect, certains modes de réalisation de l'invention permettent à des employés d'indiquer des préférences pour des équipes spécifiques sur un horizon prévisionnel, à l'intérieur de limites imposées par le système de programmation. Les modes de réalisation du système et du procédé cherchent à satisfaire toutes les contraintes rigides et ils utilisent une technique souple d'évaluation par score afin de réduire au minimum le manquement à des contraintes douces. Les modes de réalisation prennent également en considération la substitution d'employés à qualifications supérieures dans les cas où existe une demande non satisfaire d'employés à qualifications inférieures.
