    Nurse Scheduling Help

    Hello !

    I am currently studying a course "Intro to Management Sciences" in which we were assigned to do a project on "Nurse Scheduling". We visited a nearby hospital and tried to gather information but they only shared a little info while they told us that further information could not be provided due to confidentiality.
    Attached is the model we tried to create. We have to optimally schedule each nurse so that our cost could be minimized and maximum available of nurses is ensured. Our decision variables are more than 200 so we have used opensolver to solve it but even after putting all the constraints we are not getting a feasible solution.

    Shift 1 Timing: 0700-1200
    Shift 2 Timing: 1200-1700

    Objection Function: Cost minimization
    Decision Variables: Individual Nurse Shift (Binary)
    Constraints:
    Minimum Working Days in a week : 5 (10 shift)
    Maximum Consecutive Shifts: 2
    Maximum Off Shifts: 4 (2 days)
    Maximum Morning (Shift 1)Shifts: 7
    Minimum Morning (Shift 1)Shifts: 2
    Maximum Evening (Shift 2) Shifts: 2
    Minimum Evening (Shift 2) Shifts: 2

    I have been able to add only first constraint (Min Working Days One)
    If someone could help me solving this model. That would be quite helpful.

    Thanks

    Your post does not comply with Rule 8 of our Forum RULES. Do not crosspost your question on multiple forums without including links here to the other threads on other forums.

    Cross-posting is when you post the same question in other forums on the web. The last thing you want to do is waste people's time working on an issue you have already resolved elsewhere. We prefer that you not cross-post at all, but if you do (and it's unlikely to go unnoticed), you MUST provide a link (copy the url from the address bar in your browser) to the cross-post.

    Expect cross-posted questions without a link to be closed and a message will be posted by the moderator explaining why. We are here to help so help us to help you!

    Read this to understand why we ask you to do this, and then please edit your first post to include links to any and all cross-posts in any other forums (not just this site).

    I am extremely sorry for this. I thought sharing other forum links is forbidden as it is the rule in most forums.
    Kindly help me out in this problem. I posted it on multiple forums so that I could get the answer ASAP !
