Our experience with development of computer driven scheduling systems began over 45 years ago with the development of an engine for final exam scheduling at college level institutions. The requirements for this engine demanded that exams be scheduled such that student conflicts were minimized. Since that time technology has changed immensely and our knowledge continued to grow. All of this experience has been applied to this project and the proprietary multi-pass scheduling engine that drives this service. As one might expect, a scheduling engine must be fast and must be able to address and satisfy a multitude of constraints and preferences. We developed a custom scheduling engine for liturgical minister scheduling that is unsurpassed in accommodating minister preferences, constraints, relationships with other ministers, and multiple ministry participation. All of these factors are critical in producing a schedule that meets the needs of the ministers who volunteer to serve.
The Scheduler saves me a tremendous amount of time. More important than the efficiency is the fact that the accuracy can be trusted. I love the fact that each minister is able to block out dates they are unable to serve. The ministers appreciate the flexibility and being responsible for their personal schedules.
I find this tool invaluable!
