Optimisation

previous  Top  next

Break supervision optimisation assigns the most suitable teacher to each vacant supervision. This means that

supervisions already allocated will not be modified.

 

Which teachers are rated as most suitable for a specific supervision and how

depends on the weighting parameters that you set.

 

Launch the automatic scheduling of break supervisions with the <Optimisation> button.

You can use the selection box (1) to limit the optimisation to one supervision area. Keep the option '- All -' for the time being.

Use the “from Break” and “to Break” fields (4,5) to limit optimisation to specific breaks. For example, specifying from break 1 to break 2 would mean that only supervisions before the first and second periods would be scheduled. Leave these fields empty for the time being.

 

It is often advisable to search for teachers to supervise the longer breaks first. This allows you to process the long breaks first (which are more difficult to schedule) and then to fill in the remaining gaps when you optimise the rest.

 

Use the 'Shortest break' field for this purpose (6). Entering 15 in this field will result in only those supervisions of at least 15 minutes or longer being scheduled. Leave this field empty for the time being as well. This means that all supervisions will be scheduled.

 

If you use lesson groups (multi-week timetable), it is possible to schedule break supervisions for specific lesson groups (2) or for the entire school year. Leave this field empty for the time being as well.

 

(3) allows you to specify whether all weeks of the selected lesson group should be scheduled.

 

Point (7) will be dealt with in the next chapter Correction run .
