A "What If" Approach to Academic Facilities Utilization. Proceedings of Statewide Higher Education Conference - Academic Planning, Facilities, Finance, Institutional Studies (Pigeon Lake Field Station, Drummond, Wis., June 3-6, 1968).
Ansfield, Paul J.
Consideration is given to a computer technology approach for studying and developing the best utilization pattern for any complex of academic facilities. The approach basically involves simulating a variety of possible class schedules and then decisively implementing the one schedule that best approximates the existing standard for utilization and that best supports the institution's academic program. Use of computer simulation methodology allows for manipulation of a number of factors with rapidity and ease, therefore, one may maneuver detailed inventory data in order to forecast a variety of heuristic alternative sets of room assignments for achieving optimal utilization of existing facilities.
