Summary Due to advances in medicine, many people are now able to maintain good health and enjoy an active lifestyle long into their senior years. Many of the difficulties and health concerns associated with aging are now manageable or even preventable with the help of medications and dietary supplements. Unfortunately there are many people who are unable to benefit from these advances due difficulties adhering to a regular medication schedule. Elderly people especially often suffer from memory impairment or general forgetfulness and are unable to cope with a complex medication regime.
Example[ edit ] Suppose that a taxi firm has three taxis the agents available, and three customers the tasks wishing to be picked up as soon as possible.
The firm prides itself on speedy pickups, so for each taxi the "cost" of picking up a particular customer will depend on the time taken for the taxi to reach the pickup point.
The solution to the assignment problem will be whichever combination of taxis and customers results in the least total cost. However, the assignment problem can be made rather more flexible than it first appears. In the above example, suppose that there are four taxis available, but still only three customers.
Then a fourth dummy task can be invented, perhaps called "sitting still doing nothing", with a cost of 0 for the taxi assigned to it. The assignment problem can then be solved in the usual way and still give the best solution to the problem.
Similar adjustments can be done in order to allow more tasks than agents, tasks to which multiple agents must be assigned for instance, a group of more customers than will fit in one taxior maximizing profit rather than minimizing cost.
