Abstract: The object of research is the assignment problem, which consists in finding the minimum (or maximum) weight between the elements of two finite sets. An approximate method of solving the assignment problem is considered, which makes it possible to distribute the workers in such way so that the total costs in performing the work are minimal. Also, an algorithm is constructed to solve the task of assigning workers for work distribution, using the Hungarian method, where in a specific example, its use is shown. Three iterations are carried out, that is, one worker is relocated from work, after which more than one worker is assigned to work, for which no worker is assigned. Also, an approximate method to solve this problem is used and a concrete example is given. These algorithms allow to find the minimum costs when performing work by workers.
