We consider the task of assigning teams of specialists who jointly perform certain types of jobs (consulting services, compliance assessment for products, goods or services according to given requirements etc.). The team performing this work is composed of a set of specialists of various types (specialties), and their total number is limited. The problem is to design a team work plan for which the time to complete all jobs is minimal. We reduce this task to a linear programming problem and also consider heuristic algorithms and special cases of the problem.
