Modeling and Solution of a Complex University Course Timetabling Problem

  title={Modeling and Solution of a Complex University Course Timetabling Problem},
  author={Keith S. Murray and Tom{\'a}s M{\"u}ller and Hana Rudov{\'a}},
The modeling and solution approaches being used to automate construction of course timetables at a large university are discussed. A course structure model is presented that allows this complex real-world problem to be described using a classical formulation. The problem is then tackled utilizing a course timetabling solver model that transforms it into a constraint satisfaction and optimization problem. The tiered structure of this approach provides flexibility that is helpful in solving the… CONTINUE READING
