The approach based on network model is capable of solving very large timetabling problems. The proposed system resultsin improved faculty satisfaction, adjusting of maximum under of students having backlogs, more effective room utilization, adjusting of maximum number of students having backlogs, more effective room utilization and smoothlines the tedious scheduling process.
