Improving the Quality of Personnel Scheduling by Incorporating Fairness

Gözde Alp and Ali Fuat Alkaya

Abstract—This paper deals with a real world personnel scheduling problem of a company that has large number of employees. In this problem, once given the number of workers needed for each day and shift, and the constraints emerging from the company and official regulations, the objective is to assign the shifts to workers in a fair manner. To solve this problem, we defined two sub problems, where the first one is the tour scheduling problem, and the second one is the employee assignment problem. We built the integer linear models of these problems by incorporating the constraints and implemented the models in a solver. Application results show that our results are much better in terms of schedule quality and fairness when it is compared with actual schedule. To our best, this is the first study that takes fairness into account.

Index Terms—Tour scheduling, shift scheduling, shift assignment, personnel scheduling, fairness.
