Abstract:Newminds provides solutions in the form of web and mobile applications aimed to support delivery of services. One of their current products is the so called “Graphic Planboard” (GP). The GP is a manually controlled scheduling tool.In order to keep pace with competitors Newminds is set to explore automating options in regards to the previously mentioned the scheduling tool. To achieve this end, the reasoning that underlays the scheduling function must be captured and consequently be converted into a functioning scheduling model. This research paper is concerned with identifying the factors incorporated in the existing scheduling function and discovering possible solution methods that can lead to a functional scheduling model.
