Timetabling is a complex and often difficult task. Considering the large number of students, availability of lecturers and rooms, scheduling a feasible schedule without mistakes is not an easy task. Some universities are still using the manual paper based scheduling. A computer based timetabling system can greatly help the creation and management of university timetabling. This paper analyzed the problem of Oral Final Study Examination in Swiss German University, and proposed a computer based solution using a heuristic method for an automated scheduling system.
