Shift-design with Answer Set Programming

Abstract : Answer Set Programming (ASP) is a powerful declarative programming paradigm that has been successfully applied to many di erent domains. Recently, ASP has also proved successful for hard optimization problems like course timetabling. In this paper, we approach another important task, namely, the shift design problem, aiming at an alignment of a minimum number of shifts in order to meet required numbers of employees (which typically vary for different time periods) in such a way that over- and understang is minimized. We provide an ASP encoding of the shift design problem, which, to the best of our knowledge, has not been addressed by ASP yet.
