Efficient Rostering

Historically, rostering has been carried out as a manual process without taking all the components of efficiency into account. It is suggested that rostering should really be carried out in a cycle with each iteration of the cycle being used to increase the efficiency of the roster.

In this way a company can ensure maximum efficiency with regard to the utilisation of the guard force by rostering the correct number of guards of the correct grades for the correct number of hours at the correct sites. Furthermore, the roster should ensure that overtime and non-productive time is limited as much as possible and that rostered wage-to-revenue percentages will provide the desired profits.
