Business Need

Schools need to schedule timetables, which seems simple but actually not possible for human to come out a good timetable which can satisfy all requirements in a short time. For example, same teacher could teach different class, students in same class can take different level of subjects at the same time, some lessons require certain facilities which are shared among the whole school, etc. All these requirements make the timetable scheduling very difficult.
