dc.description.abstractThe Gardner Kansas Parks and Recreation Department sponsors several baseball and softball leagues each year. The league coordinator is responsible for the scheduling of games at the City’s two complexes. The recreational leagues are scheduled in cooperation with their respective leagues. The competitive league games, collectively called the Prairie League, are then scheduled around those games. This process is currently done manually by the league coordinator. The purpose of this project is to develop a scientific method for the scheduling of games in the Prairie League. This method is intended to take into account conflicts for individual teams as well as preferences that teams may have regarding the scheduling of their games. A mathematical model was developed using the seven step modeling process taught by Dr. Tom Bowlin. (Bowlin 2009) This model was built using Microsoft Excel and contained over 127,000 variables. An advanced optimization tool developed by Frontline Systems, Inc. was used to solve the model. The optimal solution resulted in a schedule that met all constraints and satisfied team requests and preferences. With some modification to account for different individual team preferences and the number of teams, the model could be used again for future league schedules.
