Hochschule für Gestaltung (HfG) Schwäbisch Gmünd. February – July 2011. Lead of the project.

This project was done during my employment at the HfG. The school was in the need of an efficient schedule- and room-planning system. An academic assistant had been doing all the scheduling and planning in Adobe inDesign without any software helping with logic, issues etc! It was a very nerve-wrecking job to do over the summer. I felt I had to put my information science skills to use and help out.

I did a thorough research of different software options and settled for a collaboration with a company that had a product for high schools. It fit best with all the needs and wants we had at the HfG in terms of scheduling lecturers and Professors that are only available at certain times, because they are working in industry half of their time. My information science skills were extremely useful for this project. I lead this collaboration.

The implementation and all the work towards it took about 5 months and turned out to be a great success. The system is still in use.
