Scheduling plays a vital role in todays scenario in all organizations right from allocation of
resources, budget estimation, financial planning and demand forecasting. These are the
functions in which scheduling plays a essential part in day today activities. The success of
organization based on the effectiveness of planning and scheduling operations within the
organization. Scheduling has predetermined time interval within which we have to assign all
activities as per plan subjected to given constraints. Each schedule event will have a start time
and end time within the estimated limit the proposed function or particular activity must be
done smoothly without affecting the resources. The resources such as raw material, men,
machines and money are the challenging constraints in any private or public organization. In
this paper attempt has been made to estimate manpower scheduling requirements in a hospital
management system. First the problem is to be solved using mathematical solver such as
LINGO solver for various problem sizes then it is to be compared with algorithm in terms of
solution accuracy and computational time.
