A variety of neighbourhood operators have been used in local search and metaheuristic approaches to solving nurse rostering problems. We test and analyse the efficiency of these neighbourhoods on benchmark problems which are taken from real world scenarios. A variable depth search is then developed based on the results of this investigation. The algorithm heuristically chains together moves and swaps which define the more effective search neighbourhoods. A number of heuristics for creatingâ€¦Â CONTINUE READING
