Why Rules Matter

 

Every scheduling administrator has dozens, if not hundreds, of rules floating in their head when creating a schedule. Some rules are more important than others, but all need to be considered. With Lightning Bolt, you will have an easy-to-use Rule Builder that allows you to create an unlimited number of your group’s own unique rules and rank them by priority. When building a schedule, our state-of-the-art technology will look at every rule and automatically generates the best schedule possible using a process called combinatorial optimization.

 

What is combinatorial optimization?

It sounds fancy because it is fancy. Combinatorial optimization consists of finding an optimal object from a finite set of objects using complex algorithms. You can read more about it in our blog post, but we believe it is the best way of creating schedules. Airlines, sports, and delivery industries all use this method for efficiency. We use it to generate the best schedule you’ve ever seen.
