Abstract: A novel nurse rostering model is developed to represent real world problem
instances more accurately. The proposed model is generic in the sense that it allows
modelling of essentially different problem instances. Novel local search neighbourhoods
are implemented to take advantage of the problem properties represented by the model.
These neighbourhoods are used in a variable neighbourhood search and in an adaptive
large neighbourhood search algorithm. The performance of the solution method
is evaluated empirically on real world data. The proposed model is open to further
extensions for covering personnel planning problems in different sectors and countries.
