A problem of practical importance since it may be used to model a number of resource distribution problems is that of multi-item scheduling. In particular, the scenario here is one in which an institution must allocate its courses to various periods in a timetable so as to satisfy certain constraints. It is realized that it may not be possible to satisfy all constraints so that the model is constructed as a mixed integer goal programming problem. Solution of the model is discussed and an actual example provided.
