An Algorithm to Automatically Generate Schedule for School Lectures Using a Heuristic Approach

Anirudha Nanda, Manisha P. Pai, and Abhijeet Gole

Abstract—This paper proposes a general solution for the School timetabling problem. Most heuristic proposed earlier approaches the problem from the students’ point of view. This solution, however, works from the teachers’ point of view i.e. teacher availability for a given time slot. While all the hard constraints (e.g. the availability of teachers, etc.) are resolved rigorously, the scheduling solution presented in this paper is an adaptive one, with a primary aim to solve the issue of clashes of lectures and subjects, pertaining to teachers.

Index Terms—time tabling, scheduling, operational research, artificial intelligence, heuristic.
