In an assessment center, candidates for job vacancies perform a set of tasks during which so-called assessors evaluate them. We discuss a novel planning problem that consists of scheduling the tasks and assigning a prescribed number of assessors to the tasks subject to a given deadline and specific assessor-assignment constraints. The objective is to minimize the total operational costs. We develop a mixed-integer linear programming formulation of this problem. To improve the performance, we introduce preprocessing techniques and a row generation scheme. We demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed approach for a set of test instances derived from real-life data.
