Timetabling determines the learning experience of every student and shapes the work pattern of every member of the teaching staff. It is a process that has implications for staff and student performance, course evaluation and standards of morale throughout a college or university.

Timetabling impacts directly on space efficiency levels. The process defines the required number of student workplaces, the area allocated for teaching and learning facilities, and the total space resources of an institution. Space requirements have major implications for the financial viability of courses, departments and entire colleges or universities.
Timetabling is a mission-critical process which is linked directly to the achievement levels of both staff and students and the financial viability of colleges and universities as centres of learning and enquiry.
