Tatties is an a system that allows events,for example lectures or tutorials, to be timetabled into timeslots and rooms fully automatically. It uses the new technology of evolutionary algorithms to allow timetables to evolve which not only work, but are "good" from the point of view of all concerned. Tatties is normally used with Neeps - an easy to use timetable data editor and viewer, which allows publication of timetables on the web.
TATTIES is a Research - Other Sources project funded by Napier University. Carried out in collaboration with and others. For further information please refer to http://www.dcs.napier.ac.uk/~benp/.
