FET is open source free software for automatically scheduling the timetable of a school, high-school or university



Quote
Description ::.

FET is open source free software for automatically scheduling the timetable of a school, high-school or university. It uses a fast and efficient timetabling algorithm. It is licensed under GNU GPL.

Usually, FET is able to solve a complicated timetable in maximum 5-20 minutes. For simpler timetables, it may take a shorter time, under 5 minutes (in some cases, a matter of seconds). For extremely difficult timetables, it may take a longer time, a matter of hours.

Features ::.

   

      FET is free software (open source). You can freely use, copy, modify and re-distribute it, as GNU GPL permits
   

      Localized to en_US (US English, default), ar (Arabic), ca (Catalan), da (Danish), de (German), el (Greek), es (Spanish), fa (Persian), fr (French), he (Hebrew), hu (Hungarian), id (Indonesian), it (Italian), lt (Lithuanian), mk (Macedonian), ms (Malay), nl (Dutch), pl (Polish), pt_BR (Brazilian Portuguese), ro (Romanian), ru (Russian), si (Sinhala), sk (Slovak), tr (Turkish) and uk (Ukrainian) (incompletely for some languages)
   

      Fully automatic generation algorithm, allowing also semi-automatic or manual allocation
   

      Platform independent implementation, allowing running on GNU/Linux, Windows, Mac and any system that Qt supports
   

      Powerful flexible modular XML format for the input file, allowing editing with an XML editor or by hand (besides FET interface)
   

      Import/export from CSV format
   

      The resulted timetables are exported into HTML, XML and CSV formats
   

      Very flexible students (pupils) structure, organized into sets: years, groups and subgroups. FET allows overlapping years and groups and non-overlapping subgroups. You can even define individual students (as separate sets)
   

      Each constraint has a weight percentage, from 0.0% to 100.0% (but some special constraints can have only 100% weight percentage possible)
   

      Limits for the algorithm (all these limits can be increased on demand, as a custom version, because this requires a bit more memory):
         

            Maximum total number of hours (periods) per day: 60
         

            Maximum number of working days per week: 35
         

            Maximum total number of teachers: 6000
         

            Maximum total number of sets of students: 30000
         

            Maximum total number of subjects: 6000
         

            Virtually unlimited number of activity tags
         

            Maximum number of activities: 30000
         

            Maximum number of rooms: 6000
         

            Maximum number of buildings: 6000
         

            Adjustable duration for each activity (each activity can have duration of 1 hour, 2 hours, 3 hours or more)
         

            Possibility of adding multiple teachers and students sets for each activity. That is, each activity can have specified any number of students subgroups (sets) and any number of teachers (it is possible to have no teacher or no students set for an activity, also)
         

            Maximum number of time constraints: 60000
         

            Maximum number of space constraints: 60000
   

      A large and flexible palette of time constraints:
         

            Break periods
         

            For teacher(s):
               

                  Not available periods
               

                  Max/min days per week
               

                  Max gaps per day/week
               

                  Max hours daily/continuously
               

                  Min hours daily
               

                  Max hours daily/continuously with an activity tag
               

                  Respect working in an hourly interval a max number of days per week
         

            For students (sets):
               

                  Not available periods
               

                  Begins early (specify max allowed beginnings at second hour)
               

                  Max gaps per day/week
               

                  Max hours daily/continuously
               

                  Min hours daily
               

                  Max hours daily/continuously with an activity tag
               

                  Respect working in an hourly interval a max number of days per week
         

            For an activity or a set of activities/subactivities:
               

                  A single preferred starting time
               

                  A set of preferred starting times
               

                  A set of preferred time slots
               

                  Min/max days between them
               

                  End(s) students day
               

                  Same starting time/day/hour
               

                  Not overlapping
               

                  Consecutive, ordered, grouped (for 2 or 3 (sub)activities)
               

                  Min gaps between a set of (sub)activities
   

      A large and flexible palette of space constraints:
         

            Room not available periods
         

            For teacher(s):
               

                  Home room(s)
               

                  Max building changes per day/week
               

                  Min gaps between building changes
         

            For students (sets):
               

                  Home room(s)
               

                  Max building changes per day/week
               

                  Min gaps between building changes
         

            Preferred room(s):
               

                  For a subject
               

                  For an activity tag
               

                  For a subject and an activity tag
               

                  Individually for a (sub)activity
