2004 HiMCM A:Motel Cleaning Problem
Motels and hotels hire people to clean the rooms after each evening's use. Develop a mathematical model for the cleaning schedule and use of cleaning resources. Your model should include consideration of such things as stay-overs, costs, number of rooms, number of rooms per floor, etc. Draft a letter to the manger of a major motel or hotel complex that recommends your model to help them in the management of their operation.
