Suggestions / Short name for subjects/teachers
August 23, 2016, 09:26:08 PM
Could you add an extra field for subjects and teachers to allow for a short name/abbreviation of it? For example, for a subject called "Classical literature" a short name could be "CL" or "C-101". Then the print timetable features would allow to print the short names (i.e. compact timetable) or long names (i.e. normal timetable)

Suggestions / Exact days between activities

A constraint "Exact N days between activities" would imply "Min N days between activities" AND "Max N days between activities". I use these two constraints simultaneously in order to force two activities to be scheduled in same week days (in an odd/even timetable).

Get Help / Minimum hours per day for all teachers
August 20, 2016, 02:25:19 PM
I have a setup with 1500 activities spanning over 2 weeks (odd/even scenario). If I don't use the min hours per day for all teachers constraint I get a timetable in less than 1 minute. If I use that constraints FET doesn't finish even after 30 minutes.
I would like that most teacher have a minimum hours per day constraint set, but I would like to permit a few exceptions (when needed). I could probably do by using a constraints for each teacher, but that is too complicated (and besides I don't know before hand which teacher should have it and which should not).

So, my question is: Is it possible to have 0-100 weights for the constraint "Minimum hours per day for all teachers" (instead of the mandatory weight of 100%). Would that break FET algorithm?

Thank you,
Andrei
