The personnel scheduler constructs a deterministic personnel roster that determines the line-of-work for each personnel member. When unexpected events disrupt this roster, the feasibility needs to be restored by constructing a new workable roster. The scheduler must reassign the set of employees in order to cover the disrupted shift such that the staffing requirements and the time-related personnel constraints remain satisfied. In this paper, we propose an evolutionary meta-heuristic to solve the nurse rerostering problem. We show that the proposed procedure performs consistently well under many different circumstances. We test different optimisation strategies and compare our procedure with the existing literature on a dataset that is carefully designed in a controlled and varied way.
