(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ DE GESTION DE L'ATTRIBUTION DES TÂCHES
Abstract
(EN)
A computer-implemented method includes detecting, at a processor and by a plurality of associates, a mission to be performed by the plurality of associates; identifying the mission based on associated store information comprising an inventory status, sales data, and a set of predetermined rules; generating, by the processor, a queue of tasks to complete the mission based on priorities and dependencies of the tasks; determining a task for each associate whose profile defines best abilities matching a predetermined task dataset and the associated store information; assigning the queue of tasks to the plurality of the associates to complete the tasks; receiving, from each of the associates, a notification of a completion of an assigned task; verifying, by the processor, the completion of the assigned task; and determining, by the processor, completion of the mission when each task for the mission is verified to be completed.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un procédé mis en œuvre par ordinateur consistant : à détecter, au niveau d'un processeur et par une pluralité d'associés, une mission à exécuter par la pluralité d'associés ; à identifier la mission en fonction des informations associées du magasin comprenant un état d'inventaire, des données de ventes, et un ensemble de règles prédéterminées ; à générer, par le processeur, une file d'attente des tâches pour achever la mission en fonction des priorités et des dépendances des tâches ; à déterminer une tâche pour l'associé respectif dont le profil définit les meilleures capacités correspondant à un ensemble de données de tâche prédéterminé et les informations associées du magasin ; à attribuer la file d'attente de tâches à la pluralité d'associés pour achever les tâches ; à recevoir, de l'associé respectif, une notification de l'achèvement d'une tâche attribuée ; à vérifier, par le processeur, l'achèvement de la tâche attribuée ; et à déterminer, par le processeur, l'achèvement de la mission lorsqu'il est vérifié que la tâche respective pour la mission est achevée.
