This is a simple problem from :
I'm rusty on constraint optimization and am looking for help in this particularuse case. There are individuals who are each member to several teams. This is afixed many-to-many relationship and is determined a-priori. There are 3 timeslots where the teams can be scheduled to conduct a business meeting, but if anindividual is a member of more than one team which are both meeting at a giventime slot, they'll only be able to attend one. The objective is to schedule theteams into the time slots, minimizing the number of overlaps of individuals.
- Formulate a mathematical model (on a piece of paper)
- Implement the model in code
