The Use of Ant Colony Model in the Staff Deployment Problem
For the complex features of many varieties, varying quantities of inserting production, we use such a complex system as Swarm intelligence to study the process of the production line of SMEs setting up and human resources scheduling. Based on the analysis of the operating characteristics of production cell and their comparison labor division model of the ant colony, it re-designs the workers’ features and the deployment of staff between the Production cells and finally, realizes an adaptive division of labor model by the control of computer, depending on the production task requirements and each production cell load. The experiments show that the digital simulation results can match the real cases well.
