AUTOMATED SCHEDULING TO REALISE STRATEGIC GOALS

Timetabler  Automation is a modern, innovative approach to the challenge of producing a workable timetable quickly. Now timetablers can harness the power of a sophisticated automation engine. Institution timetables can be generated entirely using Timetabler  Automation or in conjunction with CELCAT interactive timetabling.

Automation tools allow users to express the rules needed to construct a workable timetable, maximising resource utilisation whilst balancing the constraints, preferences and goals associated with those resources.

IMPROVE DECISION MAKING

 

CELCAT Timetabler  automated features include the capability to model new courses and new buildings as well as examining the impact of rooms being decommissioned through complex ‘what if?’ scenarios. Results can be previewed and saved for detailed analysis.

IMPROVE STAFF AND STUDENT SATISFACTION

CELCAT Timetabler  Automation includes a variety of constraints that are attached to resources. Further, constraints are weighted influencing how the automation engine interprets how the resource should be used in constructing a tailored solution – the timetable.  For example:

  • Staff weekly availability
  • Staff preferred room
  • Site and room suitability
  • Minimise travel time
  • Event sequencing
  • And many more…
We've been using CELCAT for our timetabling for one academic year now and Tim and the CELCAT team have been extremely helpful in implementing this. Tim has provided lots of one to one support with the automation and the support team are always just a quick email or phone call away.
