We have a spreadsheet filled with names that we need to create a training schedule from. We require a coder to GROUP people from the list in order to create this schedule.
This is a grouping and "analysis"-style project. You may wish to use Excel or Access, or any other tool, in completing your work.
I am attaching a list of NAMES, and "skills" across the top of the screen. Each skill includes a rating, such as "Menu 02" (where Menu 04 is the highest in skill ranking, Menu 00 is the lowest).
We require this list GROUPING into bunches of approximately eight, each with similar training requirements. For example, you may group eight people together with ROUGHLY the same requirement -- whereby the majority of people are being trained for the same thing.
You may of course end up with participant in a group that isn't trained on anything. That is simply how the dice rolls :)
This needs to be EXTREMELY LOGICAL, and you may even use analytical software in order to decide on the grouping.
The WINNER of this bid will need to begin work *IMMEDIATELY* and provide communication via MSN. You will need to demonstrate a very clear understanding of the challenge, and your bid will be chosen based on KNOWLEDGE and PRICE.
No far out bids please. I will give a 10 * rating for a good job, and will work with you again :))
Some further rules: Where possible, two individuals from the same "depot" should not be included in the same batch of eight. Those with the "Shipping" skill should preferably be included separately.
