|Title||A column generation approach for examination timetabling|
|Related Course(s)||Scheduling and Timetabling|
The goal of this project was to devise an algorithm to solve the examination
timetabling problem as experienced at our own faculty.
Each exam has to be assigned to one of the 10 time slots, taking into account:
This works very well: in a couple of seconds, we can find a solution for the problem of scheduling the exams of the Computer Science department,
such that only 6 students have two exams on one day, whereas the number of big rooms needed is minimum.
|Special Note||This program will be used to generate examination timetables at our department. We will publish a paper on this.|
