in reply to Looking for help with AI::Genetic and classroom scheduling

actual a quesiton, not a comment -- i've seen a few open source applications that do this sort of thing for college and high school class and room schedules over the past few years.

Did you look at the logic they use on any of those existing systems and are trying to improve on that, or are you setting out to develop your own solution/approach from scratch?

    I googled a few times for "genetic classroom scheduling", and all I ever found were papers on how others had done it. I did get some inspiration fro reading those papers, but I was still stuck about how to specifically represent my problem. I had no idea that you could get healthy solutions by breeding sick ones though, simply by breeding the least sick. {grin} That was my mental block.
