Abstract: This paper presents an optimization model for the tour scheduling problem for agents with multiple skills and flexible contracts in check-in counters at airports. The objective is to minimize the total assignment costs subject to demand fulfillment and labor regulations. In order to solve this problem we develop a rolling planning horizon-based heuristic. Our heuristic is robust and provides near-optimal schedules within reasonable computation time for real-world cases, although the parameter selection is important to its performance. In addition, we discuss the impact of the skill distribution on the scheduling costs for several instances.
