Double periods

previous  Top  next

Lessons will be scheduled in single periods unless specified otherwise. You have to allow or request double periods in the field "Double pers." of each lesson concerned. Use this field to specify the permitted range of double periods:

 

An entry of 1-1 indicates that the range is from 1 to 1, i.e. the lesson should be scheduled in exactly one double period.

 

 

KE_029

 

An entry of 0-1 means that a 2-period lesson can be scheduled in a double period, but it is not an absolute requirement (minimum 0, maximum 1 double period).

 

 

KE_030

 

An entry of 1-2 means that a 4-period lesson can also be scheduled in one double period or two double periods. The timetable algorithm should decide which variant is best suited from the overall timetable perspective.

 

 

KE_031

 

 

 

Tip: Double-period condition

If it is possible to allow variability in scheduling double periods (e.g. with the 0-1 or 1-2 options), please allow the algorithm to work with these freedoms since this can lead to a significantly better overall result.
