A heuristic incremental modeling approach to course timetabling Academic Article uri icon


  • The general timetabling problem is an assignment of activities to fixed time intervals, adhering to a predefined set of resource availabilities. Timetabling problems are difficult to solve and can be extremely time-consuming without some computer assistance. In this paper the application of constraint-based reasoning to timetable generation is examined. Specifically, we consider how a timetabling problem can be represented as a Constraint Satisfaction Problem (CSP), and propose an algorithm for its solution which improves …
