    Say you own a thriving bakery that’s open 12 hours a day, seven days a week, and you have nine full-time employees and 11 part-timers. The shop is busiest between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. and then again from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. How many people do you need on the noon to 6 p.m. shift?

    It’s a problem that could flummox even someone who aced advanced calculus.

    Fortunately, scores of software programs are available to help businesses manage their scheduling conundrums.
