AN INTEGRATED SYSTEM FOR SCHOOL TIMETABLING

Abstract

In this paper, we present an application that covers the whole complex school timetabling process, from the data introduction to the final adjustment of the automatically generated solution. On the one hand, our application interacts with the Academic Administration Official Systems (AAOS) and simplifies the hard phase of introducing the data. On the other hand, complete solutions are efficiently provided by an algorithmic engine based on different heuristic techniques, and easily updated by means of a thoroughly designed user interface.
