Abstract

This paper presents a practical Method for characterising, modelling and solving scheduling problems using a heuristic approach. The emphasis is on a heuristic methodology which has been adopted in developing the TRANSIM nurse allocation system. TRANSIM has been used in designing schedules in various schools of nursing in England and Australia. The methodology can be adopted for the purpose of automated scheduling in a variety of management and engineering applications.
