Bank 24 is open 24 hours per day. Tellers work two consecutive 6-hour shifts and are paid $10 per hour. The possible shifts are as follows: midnight–6 A.M., 6 A.M.–noon, noon–6 P.M., 6 P.M.–midnight. During each shift, the following numbers of customers enter the bank: midnight– 6 A.M., 100; 6 A.M.–noon, 200; noon–6 P.M., 300; 6 P.M.–midnight, 200. Each teller can serve up to 50 customers per shift. To model a cost for customer impatience, we assume that any customer who is present at the end of a shift “costs” the bank $5. We assume that by midnight of each day, all customers must be served, so each day’s midnight–6 A.M. shift begins with 0 customers in the bank. Formulate an LP that can be used to minimize the sum of the bank’s labor and customer impatience costs.
