Scheduling is the process that refers to establishing the timing and use of resources involved in various operations within the organization. It relates to efficient use of equipment and facility, human resources and materials. The problems faced due to absence of scheduling in an organization are staff turnover, employee availability, covering of unusual periods of activity and so on. This paper highlights the problems an organization faces due to absence or low quality scheduling and how to overcome these. Michael J Brusco has subsequently developed a new heuristic based search on the simulated annealing algorithm, which was to generate integer personnel schedules in continuously operating organizations. The baseline of any business is to achieve profitability and scheduling has major impact on company’s profitability. The gaps in scheduling are chaos in operations, loss of credibility, inefficient workflows and increased costs. The main aim of this work is to nullify the gaps using scheduling tools and techniques and also to improve the revenue of the organization. The data used for this analysis are primary data which were collected through interviews and surveys. This analysis will help in identifying the next level schedule in an organization. This analysis will help in taking scheduling in an organization to next level.
