Hi. I need help with this formation of this problem.
A highly unethical taxi company is trying to determine the number of staff it requires to cover demand - they are most interested in keeping the number of staff to the barest of minimums to cover projected demand. They are also interested in knowing when the drivers should start work. A driver will work for 16 hours at a time which begins at the start of one of the designated shifts. The company has identified a rough demand schedule below which is broken into 8 hour segments:
3am - 11am : 2
11.01am - 7pm : 3
7.01am - 3am - 14
Formulate the problem as a linear programming problem.
