A general discussion of allocation problems is dealt with in the
earlier pages of this thesis. The problem specifically dealt with in the
main part of this work is the allocation of rooms to classes according
to particular patterns of choice.

carrying out the process of room/class allocation as a practical aid
to administration. The system must reduce the amount of administrative
manual effort required, effect an improvement in the overall results
obtained for room allocation and be both fast and economical with
regard to computing effort. [Continues.]
