'distribute' and 'occurrence' constraints Description The 'occurrence' (=cardinality) constraint expresses a relation on the frequency with which a value occurs in a set of decision variables. The 'distribute' constraint generalizes this constraint by extending the cardinality relation to a list of values.
- occurrence.mos: simple example of the use of occurrence constraints
- distribute.mos: using 'distribute' or 'occurrence' constraints in the formulation of a personnel planning problem.
