These approaches tend to suffer from lack of flexibility, computational intractability, and poor results. We introduce an automated timetabler that combines data, model and knowledge-bases, developed using object-oriented methodology. The inclusion of expert knowledge allows for solutions that fit the problem context better, while the use of a database enables a more flexible and maintainable system. The object-oriented paradigm allows for a more efficient design and code implementation of scheduling procedures. Results have been promising as the system has automatically scheduled over 2000 students and instructors into more than 300 classes.||Source Title:||Expert Systems with Applications||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/44960||ISSN:||09574174||DOI:||10.1016/0957-4174(95)00050-X|
