Abstract :

The Nurse Rostering Problem consists of allocating nurses to workload according to their skill, experience and preferences with subject to given constraints. The difficulty of handling this problem is due to the high number of constraints to be satisfied. The benefit of automating the roster is to produce a roster having high quality as well as more flexibility. It also reduces workload of head nurses with minimizes time and effort. This paper presents the Ant Colony Optimization Algorithm for the problem of automatically creating nurse rosters. The ACO algorithm is tested on real world benchmark instance and compared against previously available approaches. Evolutionary Algorithms are robust and effective method to solve combinatorial optimization problems.
