Case: Chase has labor planning problems that address staffing needs over a specific time period. Goals: To minimize total daily personal cost within the corporate policies and constrains

To solve the issues, we let: F0 = Number of full-time tellers who don’t work over time F1 = Number of full-time tellers who work 1 hr over time F2 = Number of full-time tellers who work 2 hr over time A = PT tellers who work 4 hrs from 9am to 1pm B = PT tellers who work 5 hrs from 9am to 2 pm C = PT tellers who work 6 hrs from 9am to 3 pm D = PT tellers who work 6 hrs from 9am to 4 pm

E = PT tellers who work 4 hrs from 10 am to 2 pm F = PT tellers who work 5 hrs from 10 am to 3 pm G = PT tellers who work 6 hrs from 10 am to 4 pm H = PT tellers who work 7 hrs from 10 am to 5 pm I = PT tellers who work 4 hrs from 11 am to 3 pm J = PT tellers who work 5 hrs from 11 am to 4 pm K = PT tellers who work 6 hrs from 11 am to 5 pm L = PT tellers who work 7 hrs from 11 am to 6 pm M = PT tellers who work 4 hrs from 12 pm to 4 pm

N = PT tellers who work 5 hrs from 12 pm to 5 pm O = PT tellers who work 6 hrs from 12 pm to 6 pm P = PT tellers who work 7 hrs from 12 pm to 7 pm Q = PT tellers who work 4 hrs from 1 pm to 5 pm R = PT tellers who work 5 hrs from 1 pm to 6 pm S = PT tellers who work 6 hrs from 1 pm to 7 pm T = PT tellers who work 4 hrs from 2 pm to 6 pm U = PT tellers who work 5 hrs from 2 pm to 7 pm V = PT tellers who work 4 hrs from 3 pm to 7 pm

DISCUSSION QUESTION What is the minimum-cost schedule for the bank? By utilizing QM for Windows and Excel Solver, we obtain the minimum-cost schedule for the bank is \$3,026.65

DISCUSSION QUESTION 2. What are the limitations of the model used to answer question 1? The model used to solve the problem suffers from the limitation that there are several optimal outcomes and a different answer may be obtained depending on the sequence in which the constraints are answered.

DISCUSSION QUESTION 3. Costs might be reduced by relaxing the constraint that no more than 40% of the day’s requirement be met by part-timers. Would changing the 40% to a higher value significantly reduce costs? Yes, changing the 40% to a higher value would significantly reduce costs. We provide the sensitivity analysis as follows:

Changing to 60% Cost: \$2,485.83 Changing to 80% Cost: \$2,382.08 As the percentage increases, the cost decreases.
