The distribution of children to day-care facilities is a complex matching problem. Many cities solve the problem with a decentralized approach, where each day-care facility has its own wait-list. This process is often time-consuming and not optimized in view of parents’ preferences. We work in cooperation with the University of Heidelberg on a market mechanism, which enables an automatic distribution, which considers the needs of both parents and day-care facilities.
