I took this problem from the Business Management 13e textbook by Burrow and Kleindl and added my own spin by adding Microsoft Word components.
In this problem students have to create a table in Microsoft Word and create a work schedule for three different projects. They must make sure that only a certain number of workers are working on a project at one time, that full-time workers have enough work to fill the week, that part-time workers are working on the days they are available and that all projects are scheduled to get done on time.
This is done on Microsoft 2010. Key not included since there are various ways to complete the work schedule.
