Net Work Models: Quantitative analysis approach

Please see attached chart that corresponds to the question.

Question: Hospital Administrator at St. Charles General must appoint head nurses to four newly established depts.: urology, cardiology, orthopedics and obstetrics. In anticipation of this staffing problem, she had hired 4 nurses: Hawkins, Condriac, Bardot and Hoolihan. Believing in the quantitative analysis approach to problem solving the admin has interviewed each nurse, considered his or her background, personality, and talents and developed a cost scale ranging 0 to 100 to be used in the assignment. A 0 for Nurse Bardot being assigned to the cardiology unit implies that she would be perfectly suited to that task. A value close to 100 on the other hand, would imply that she is not at all suited to head that unit. Which nurse should be assigned to which unit?
