Optimizing schedules is hard. Custom algorithms that leverage ML and Mathematical Optimization can help make it easy.
Blended ML & Optimization Should Solve Scheduling Problems
Staffing and scheduling optimization are crucial for many industries, significantly when the exact timing of high-volume activity can change based on complex factors. Augmenting the workforce and assets too early means diverting profit to unnecessary costs while waiting until high-volume demand is already underway, risking operating below capacity and decreasing customer satisfaction (e.g., if there are long wait times).
Machine learning can be deployed to forecast operational demand and predict event duration. Mathematical optimization can augment these ML inputs to recommend a schedule that optimizes against your unique scheduling objectives.

Scheduling Problems Persist Despite Advancements in ML
- An assignment problem, assigning resources to entities that require them,
- A schedule is a sequence, an assignment problem that involves order,
- A schedule almost always has a start time and duration.
