Would you want to take into account that the bottom floor will be used most often therefore at least one elevator should idle there when not in use?

A good constraint for a variable minimum N vs a variable maximum M.

Oh right, I don't think I will be able to help with this question but I think that you will need another variable for how many people use the elevators.

Assume that the floors above ground are called at random.
