The costs associated with staff scheduling are difficult to define, although the amount of time spent on the scheduling task is easier to measure. A person manually scheduling around 35 staff for a year will cost the business at least $15,000 (these costs increase with more complex scheduling). More difficult to define are costs associated with the consequence of poorly constructed staff schedules (such as workforce stress) or misunderstood schedules. Controlling overtime costs, and less obvious benefits with a coordinated vacation schedule improve efficiency that will generate cost benefits. It is better to talk about maximizing cost benefit (increasing production with the same resources) than actual cash saving that can be entered on the balance sheet.
