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

Interesting problem, though I think that no AI or genetic algorith will give you the optimal solution.

It could be done as a linear programming case (as already stated), but it would be easier to just do a brute force type of search - i.e., test all the possible combinations for the optimal schedule. This is not an elegent approach, but it will work, and I doubt you have enough variables to make your pc choke.

If you want just a "good" and not necessarily and the optimal solution, you could evolve something pretty easily.
