Partial optimisation

previous  Top  next

This type of optimisation examines a great number of solutions. Since this method takes so long, it is not usually possible to optimise all courses at the same time, and the user must select which subset of courses should be optimised.



Note: Courses with the same weekly periods

Partial optimisation ignores course periods/week, i.e. each course is scheduled in exactly one cluster without its periods/week being taken into account. It is therefore advisable to schedule courses with the same number of periods/week in the same optimisation run.


Partial optimisation is launched via menu item "Modules | Course scheduling | Partial optimisation".





Partial optimisation can be divided into three processes:


1.Specifying subsets

2.Defining optimisation parameters

3.Optimising subsets
