Tablix is a high school timetable generator. It uses a coarse-grained parallel genetic algorithm to construct sensible timetables from XML-formated school information files. It can run on a single host as well as on a heterogeneous parallel virtual machine by using PVM3.
Tablix supports loadable modules that extend its functionality. Each module includes a part of the fitness function that is used by the genetic algorithm to select best timetables out of a large search space.
Each module can also extend the syntax of the XML configuration file by defining one or more types of <restriction> tags and can accept one or more module options in the form of <option> tags.
