Abstract or Summary
  • A decision support system (DSS) for nurse scheduling in hospitals is developed and implemented on microcomputer. The system includes algorithms and databases for developing weekly work and shift patterns and combining these into working schedules for nurses for a specified time horizon, and interface modules for the user to interact with the system. The system combines heuristic modeling with decision analysis concepts to generate nurse schedules. A heuristic best-first search technique is used in implementing pattern generation and screening process to satisfy both nurses and hospital's objectives. Emphasis in the design of the DSS has been on computational efficiency and user acceptability. The system is flexible so that it can be implemented in different hospital environments, and incorporates a wide range of hospital and nurses' objectives.
