Abstract:The University of Twente is struggling to plan all educational events given the availability of educational facilities and teachers. It seems that lecture rooms are used suboptimal. Currently timetables are made before the first-year students have registered and the current students have enrolled for courses. It is therefore difficult to estimate the required capacity of a course. To decrease uncertainty on actual utilisation research has been done on ways to count student numbers during lectures. And the recent interlinking of different student information systems might prove new insights in the student enrolment. The question is however if and how this information on enrolment and participation can improve the quality of the timetable. Because of complexity, only the allocation of scheduled events to classrooms will be researched, it is assumed that a schedule in time is given and fixed. The goal of this research is to analyse the effect of usage and utilisation knowledge on the quality of the room allocation. This is done in two steps; creating a room allocation automatically and using this model to dynamically adapt to real-time data.
