Employee shift rostering optimization AI with OptaPlanner

Any manager of nurses, guards, assembly line workers, or any other type of employee that doesn't work a typical 9 to 5 day, will agree: Shift rostering is difficult—and time consuming. Holidays affect the schedule, employees take PTO (or call in sick) and staffing requirements change regularly. Meanwhile, the schedule must adhere to labor laws, without incurring extra staffing costs. At the same time, it should also fulfill employee requests, treating all employees fairly.

In this session, we’ll show how we can automate this time-consuming task to deliver better schedules with OptaPlanner and how to deploy that service on Red Hat OpenShift.
