A decision support system, the Naval Postgraduate School Scheduling Support System (NPS4), is proposed to assist schedulers in developing schedules for students, instructors and classrooms for the academic quarter and final examination week. Historical aspects of course scheduling at the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) are described, and the current course scheduling process (1992) at NPS is analyzed. Its requirements, high-level specifications, and design elements are described in detail. An analysis of alternatives, future considerations for designing and implementing the proposed decision support system, and a prototype user interface are presented.
