This report resulted from the need for a less time consuming method of handling driving assignments expressed by the management of a forklift test facility. With six drivers at various levels of efficiency in driving eight types of forklifts, the time that could be spent manipulating the schedule to match the driver efficiency to each type, while minimizing total expenses became prohibitive. A Linear Programming model was developed to optimize driver assignments in order to minimize cost.
