This does seem oddly out of place, but bear with me.... If we have 3 courts, and 150 members, how can we simulate the effects of changing booking rules? For example if we can currently book 7 times per week but can only "hold" up to four live bookings, and I propose to change that to 7 bookings?

How can I model the changes if we kept the ability to hold 4 bookings, but allowed members to book up to a month in advance instead of just a week?

  • Please clarify your specific problem or provide additional details to highlight exactly what you need. As it's currently written, it's hard to tell exactly what you're asking.

    You could probably try one of the software used for rotas like: optaplanner.org or abc-roster.com and define constraints based on your problem.

  • FLude, just reword your question and it will be re-opened. State that you are seeking simulation software, then say what you want to simulate and what variables there are - it's all in your question, but it needs to be reworded to ask for a s/w recommendation (at the moment, it reads like you are looking for an algorithm or mathematical formula). How to Ask should Help. Welcome aboard, and good luck. We really do want to help you :-) Nov 16 '21 at 21:09
