FET is open source software for automatically generating the timetable of a school, high-school or university. It can also be used for other timetabling purposes.
FET is able to automatically care about all groups (classes/courses/students), has a very large palette of constraints and styleable xhtml timetables.
FET is able to solve a complicated timetable in a maximum of 5-20 minutes.
- Fully automatic generation algorithm, allowing also semi-automatic or manual allocation.
- Platform independent implementation, allowing running on GNU/Linux, Windows, Mac and any system that Qt supports.
- Flexible modular XML format for the input file, allowing editing with an XML editor or by hand (besides FET interface).
- Import/export from CSV format.
- The resulted timetables are exported into HTML, XML and CSV formats.
- Flexible students structure, organized into sets: years, groups and subgroups. FET allows overlapping years and groups and non-overlapping subgroups. You can even define individual students (as separate sets).
- Each constraint has a weight percentage, from 0.0% to 100.0% (but some special constraints are allowed to have only 100% weight percentage).
- Limits for the algorithm (all these limits can be increased on demand, as a custom version, because this would require a bit more memory).
- A large and flexible palette of time constraints.
- A large and flexible palette of space constraints.
- Portable – FET should run on any system that supports Gnome and Python.
