Percentage scheduling

previous  Top  next

After finishing your data entry, you should initially carry out a percentage scheduling run (e.g. at 30%) to identify lessons which Untis software categorizes as 'difficult'. As a rule, the program attempts to place such lessons as quickly as possible to prevent them from causing an obstruction later during the process.








The level of difficulty of a lesson is higher, the more elements are unavailable, the more elements are coupled and the bigger the lesson block which needs to be scheduled.


If Untis encounters problems during the scheduling of the very first 30% of periods and, if this very first optimisation runis unable to schedule certain periods, the first thing to do is to increase the number of timetables to be generated and the number of optimisation steps. If the tool is still unable to schedule the periods, you can assume that the input data contain input weaknesses or even errors.
