  • Ch’ti JUG Jboss Drools & Drools Planner 21 janvier 2010
  • Ch’ti JUG
  • Ch’ti JUG ● Editeur de logiciels exclusivement dédiés aux enseignes du Retail ● Création en 1986 ● 35 M€ de CA en 2008 (+20 %/an en moyenne depuis 5 ans) ● 34 % à l’International ● 5 sites en France dont le siège à Roubaix. (Paris, Belfort, Antibes, Vannes) ● 5 filiales hors hexagone : Shanghai, Portugal, Espagne, Tunisie, Pologne en cours ● Une expérience éprouvée dans 60 pays

  • Ch’ti JUG Storeland pilote l’ensemble de votre supply chain étendue
  • Ch’ti JUG CYLANDE partenaire de la FFJ Le judo véhicule des valeurs Cylande a accompagné l’équipe de France de Judo à Pékin
  • Ch’ti JUG Une croissance résolument tournée vers l’international Lauréat du Prix PME France CHINE ACFCI / CCIFC
  • Ch’ti JUG Automated planning with Drools Planner Geoffrey De Smet Drools Planner lead "Do more with less."
  • Ch’ti JUG Agenda  Use cases of automated planning • N queens • Bin packaging • Employee shift rostering • Examination timetabling  Find the best solution • With Drools Planner  Calculate the score of a solution • With Drools
  • Ch’ti JUG Agenda  Use cases of automated planning • N queens • Bin packaging • Employee shift rostering • Examination timetabling  Find the best solution • With Drools Planner  Calculate the score of a solution • With Drools
  • Ch’ti JUG N Queens: use case  Place n queens on a n-sized chess board  No 2 queens can attack each other
  • Ch’ti JUG N queens: partially solved  Score -1 for every 2 queens that can attack each other Score = -2
  • Ch’ti JUG N queens: an optimal solution Score = 0
  • Ch’ti JUG N queens: demo  Not optimized! • Hello world example  Not a real planning problem • I can make an optimal solution for any n queens without a computer • See Wikipedia
  • Ch’ti JUG
  • Ch’ti JUG NP complete  Yellow item goes in first (or last) • Why? • Not the largest size • Not the largest side • So why?  NP complete • A given solution can be verified fast • No efficient way to find a solution • Is there even a solution?
  • Ch’ti JUG Real world bin packaging  Not just 5 items • 1000+ items  Not just 1 container • 100+ containers • Different container types  More constraints... • Distribute weight evenly • Not all fireworks in the same container • ...
  • Ch’ti JUG
  • Ch’ti JUG Hard constraints  Hard constraints must be fulfilled  For example: • Ensure continuous service • At least 1 emergency nurse at any given time • Labor laws • Every 24 hours: at least 11 hours rest • Every 7 days: at least 35 hours rest • No shifts during approved vacation
  • Ch’ti JUG Soft constraints  Soft constraints should be fulfilled as much as possible • Only after the hard constraints are fulfilled  Each soft constraint is weighted  For example: • Fair night work assignment: weight 5 • Forward rotation: weight 10 • Nurse preferences: weight 1 • Ann dislikes Saturday night shifts • Beth dislikes Wednesday afternoon shifts
  • Ch’ti JUG Hard and soft score  Solution A B C  Hard constraints • 11 hours rest 1 0 0  Soft constraints • Fair night work assignment 0 1000 1 • Weight 5 • Nurse preferences 0 0 4000 • Weight 1  Total score -1H/0S 0H/-5000S 0H/-4005S • A<B<C • C is the best solution
  • Ch’ti JUG
  • Ch’ti JUG Hard constraints  Exam conflict: 2 exams that share students should not occur in the same period.  Room capacity: A room's seating capacity should suffice at all times.  Period duration: A period's duration should suffice for all of its exams.  Period related hard constraints should be fulfilled: • Coincidence: 2 exams should use the same period (but possibly another room). • Exclusion: 2 exams should not use the same period. • After: 1 exam should occur in a period after another exam's period.  Room related hard constraints should be fulfilled: • Exclusive: 1 exam should not have to share its room with any other exam.
  • Ch’ti JUG Soft constraints  2 exams in a row.  2 exams in a day.  Period spread: 2 exams that share students should be a number of periods apart.  Mixed durations: 2 exams that share a room should not have different durations.  Front load: Large exams should be scheduled earlier in the schedule.  Period penalty: Some periods have a penalty when used.  Room penalty: Some rooms have a penalty when used.
  • Ch’ti JUG Examination demo  International timetabling competition 2007 • Finished 4th (back then)  7 minutes • CPU depended  Real word test data  14 constraints • 7 hard constraints • 7 soft constraints
  • Ch’ti JUG Other use cases  Vehicle routing • Freight routing  Scheduling • Course, meeting, conference scheduling • Appointment and resource scheduling • Sport scheduling  Storage organizing  Machine queue planning  ...
  • Ch’ti JUG Why use Drools Planner?  Open source • ASL (business-friendly)  Maven-ready (JBoss repository)  Documentation • Reference manual • Examples  JBoss Drools community support • User mailing list, issue tracking, … • Blog & twitter (#droolsplanner)
  • Ch’ti JUG Agenda  Use cases of automated planning • N queens • Bin packaging • Employee shift rostering • Examination timetabling  Find the best solution • With Drools Planner  Calculate the score of a solution • With Drools
  • Ch’ti JUG Brute force for (periodOfExam1 : periodList) { exam1.setPeriod(periodOfExam1); for (roomOfExam1 : roomList) { exam1.setRoom(roomOfExam1); for (periodOfExam2 : periodList) { exam2.setPeriod(periodOfExam2); for (roomOfExam2 : roomList) { exam2.setRoom(roomOfExam2); ... for (periodOfExamN : periodList) { examN.setPeriod(periodOfExamN); for (roomOfExamN : roomList) { examN.setRoom(roomOfExamN); Score score = calculateScore(solution); cloneIfScoreIsBetter(solution, score); } } } }…} }

  • Ch’ti JUG Do the math  1 exam • 80 periods and 28 rooms • 80 * 28 = 2240 ways to schedule 1 exam  2 exams • 2240 * 2240 = 5.017.600  3 exams • 2240 * 2240 * 2240 = 11.239.424.000  1096 exams • 2240 * 2240 * … * 2240 • 2240^1096 = a little over 10^3671
