Abstract
The Vancouver 2010 Integrated Security Unit (V2010-ISU) must ensure security during the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games. Over six thousand Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) officers will be tasked to provide round-the-clock security for 30 venues and 27 functions. V2010-ISU needs to develop shift schedules for the RCMP officers so that not only are hourly security requirements met, but work shifts satisfy a variety of scheduling constraints (shift lengths, start times, rest periods, etc.). As the number of personnel that are required for each hour at each venue is anticipated to change, V2010-ISU planners require an automated means of generating efficient schedules quickly. This report details the mathematical programming model which formed the basis of a software tool that was developed to assist security planners in personnel scheduling.
