In this paper we address a workforce scheduling problem in which
we have to design a shift plan, containing a great number of breaks,
satisfying several criteria, e.g. staffing demand, labour rules and ergonomic requirements. While most of previous research follows a
two-phase approach, meaning that a shift plan is designed first and
breaks are inserted afterwards, we model the entire problem and
optimize it with a local-search-based solver. We present the application of our approach on real-life instances.
