How does the program save me money,Opportunity costs, perishable hours?

The key to this question is over-manning and opportunity costs. Staffing hours are a perishable item. The staff schedule allocates staff to tasks. If the task does not materialise or disappears, or there are excess staff to perform the allocate tasks, then the staffing hours can be regarded as perishable. The money spent on these perishable staffing hours is wasted. This waste can be compounded by artificially allocating tasks in order to use the ‘excess’ time productively. The tasks allocated often involve resources, such as training, supervision and materials. If these tasks do not increase value, productivity or turnover, then perhaps there is a better way of using these perishable staffing hours. The program will immediately show you if you have excess staff on any shift. Action can immediately be taken to reallocate staff elsewhere. If you are regularly over-staffed, then this can be scheduled and used. Most organisations are undermanned at certain times of the year, such as schoo
