An application of genetic algorithms and simulated annealing to a class section scheduling problem is described. Included are a comparison of the two types of optimizing technologies, a discussion of the application domain, a description of how annealing can be used to optimize in the domain with annealing, and a description of new techniques used to optimize annealing algorithms or other numeric processes with a genetic algorithm. It is concluded that the procedures used for this application will generalize to similar domains.
