Join Curt Frye for an in-depth discussion in this video Defining summary formulas, part of Solving Optimization and Scheduling Problems in Excel.
- Creating an optimal sports schedule requires a…significant amount of recordkeeping.…So far our workbook contains the values we'll need…to create the schedule.…Now in this movie we will create the formulas…to calculate the number of games played each week…which include the number of times each team…plays each other team and the objective function…we're trying to maximize.…My sample file is the…SportsScheduling_Formulas workbook.…You can find that in the Chapter06 folder of your…exercise files collection.…
This worksheet contains a schedule for a seven week season…and I have teams in two divisions.…Three teams, A, B, and C in one division…and D, E, and F in the other.…I want each team to play once per week.…I want teams in the same division to play twice…during the season and teams in opposite divisions…to play only once.…Also having divisional teams play later in the season…is more desirable.…So we will be changing the value function to reflect that.…
First thing we can do is to calculate the number of games…that are played in a given week.…
