Rights accessOpen Access
Purpose: This research paper introduces an integrated employee scheduling problem that considersvarious real-life problems such as varying employee demand, different employee working conditions, andindividual preferences, regarding schedules. Design/methodology/approach: The proposed model, which is a combination of Analytic HierarchyProcess and Mixed Integer Linear Programming, is used to solve the problem with multi-dimensionalobjectives period.Findings: Results show that the proposed model generates optimal and feasible solutions for weeklyemployee schedules.Originality/value: Many employee scheduling problems in literature are able to solve the employeescheduling problem to a large extent. However, these studies still do not fully reflect current realisticorganizational problems such as varying employee demand per hour interval, different employee workingconditions on disjoint shifts and breaks, and individual preferences regarding schedules all at the sametime
