Original Abstract

An application of integer programming that generates optimal examination timetables is presented. The model is based on common assignment problem constraints together with more advanced logical constraints penalty-based relaxations. In order to minimize the number of constraints we identify dense timetables where the main objective is elimination of clashes and sparse timetables where we spread the exams as evenly as possible.
