Abstract

Employee schedule is an important concern for every business manager. A well-managed schedule keeps the organization moving and resolves many complex situations. In our paper, we’re going to look into the best staff scheduling practices and come up with an optimal solution for rescheduling staff in an X-ray Department at PCC Airfoils - Deer Creek Facility in Portland, Oregon, based on the production plan. PCC X-Ray department is looking for a good staff shift schedule to find out how many outside contractors the department needs to use to meet the production requirements accordingly. So, based on that information we can decide regarding hiring more people, bringing in-house contractors, or sending parts for outside contractors. Through this paper we attempt the following: 1) To minimize the cost based on the production plan. 2) Create a resource allocation model to identify how to allocate the time to process the parts
