The Nurse Assignment Problem data

This data set is an Exel file (.xls) and is used in the The Nurse Assignment Problem notebook to build a Decision Optimization model, and get its solution by solving the model with IBM Decision Optimization on Cloud. This is a simulated data set.

  • The NurseSkills table gives the skills of each nurse.
  • The SkillRequirements table lists the minimum number of persons required for a given department and skill.
