Before a Semester or Exam timetable can be generated, Enterprise Solutions must first collate the scheduling data from SI (The Student Record System), ASCS (Academic Scheduling Constraints System) and MERCS(Module Exam Constraints System). As the data is being collated, it is transformed in to an appropriate format and loaded in to CMIS. CMIS is the scheduling software application that SAA use to generate Semester and Exam timetables.
ITD supports SAA throughout each scheduling process whilst endeavouring to further develop the means of gathering and collating scheduling data.
For further details, please log a call with the ITD service desk for the attention of Enterprise Solutions
