Shift Assignments, Fall 2017-Spring 2018

November 21, 2017

Here is what I did:

  • count the number of blocks in each category, n=1,2,3,4
  • order the shift takers in point order, lowest to highest
  • randomize the n=4 blocks and assign them to the list in order, wrapping around if necessary
    • equivalently, randomize the shift-takers what would be so assigned and slot them into shifts in order
  • randomize the n=3 blocks and assign them to the list in order, picking up where the n=4 assignments left off
  • repeat for n=2 and n=1
  • look for conflicts, execute swaps as follows
    • choose the second of the conflicting shifts
    • swap with next like-n’ed block where the swap will not cause a conflict
  • as a check, tally the number of blocks assigned in each category for each shift taker
    • total shifts should be in inverse order of points
