Roster management refers to schedule management. Schedule is also known as rota or roster. Managing a roster typically includes a list of employees and information related to them like their location, timing, and responsibilities for the time period (which can be a sports season, month, or a week) mentioned in the roster.
Roster management is usually done in organisations where there are morning, afternoon and evening shifts. It is done to ensure that each shift has adequate number of employees so that the productivity doesn’t get hampered.
An ideal roster design should aid in spotting issues due to which certain problems occur in shift management.
