Paperless Master Timetable Scheduling System
Paul Godwin Daniel, Dr. Alimi Olasunkanmi Maruf, Dr. Bala Modi

Timetable generation is a very difficult task. It is a time consuming, and arduous process. To manually generate a timetable, takes a lot of time, effort, and manpower. However, a timetable scheduling system is designed for different purposes such as: organizing lectures in higher institutions, private organization, airlines, bus station, etc. This paper tries to minimize the difficulties in generating a timetable for academic purposes, using Logarithmic algorithm, to be precise the modified Quicksort algorithm for its design. The algorithm is designed to eradicate collisions on the timetable, and to run in parallel. This helps to minimize the human errors, improve the accuracy of the timetable scheduling process as well as the computation time. To this extent, a Paperless Master Timetable Scheduling System (PMTSS) was proposed and implemented tin this paper to achieve the said requirements. The system can be installed on any android or windows platform. The content of the design also provides exciting services such as: Live Chat for Administrators, Lecturers and Students, Timetable alertsetc. The paperless timetable scheduling system involves dynamic system utilization and modifications.
