In work scheduling problems, scheduling constraints are not absolutely rigid; they may be changed depending on the scheduling aspect effected. In order to cope with changes in scheduling constraints and assignment strategies and to optimize scheduling results quickly, this paper will propose a new scheduling method which combines knowledge engineering and mathematical programming techniques.
