4 Education Bureau. The Government of the HKSAR. Page IV. All Rights Reserved. Installation Guidelines for Standalone Timetabling Tool Version 1. Objectives Standalone Timetabling Tool (STT) has been developed for school to generate timetables of the academic year. The objectives of the STT are to: Enable the school to generate multiple timetable scenarios on one workstation or a few workstations simultaneously. Offload the timetable generation process to workstations. Thus, the server resources of WebSAMS can be released for other processes and the usage of other WebSAMS module will not be affected. Provide new user interface and features, such as allowing multiple windows view of timetable results, and easily tuning the results and relaxing the constraints midway in-between the generation process. Hence, the interactive tuning process can be shortened. Improve the efficiency of the operation of timetable generation, where teachers will in turn spend less time in dealing with the process.

5 The time saved can then be diverted to teaching and other educational work, thus leading to better services. This document facilitates IT support staff or users of the schools to install the STT into the school owned device so that the school users can generate the timetable using STT. 2. Target Audience This document is mainly for IT support staff who is responsible for the actual planning and Installation works. They are expected to have basic understanding of the localhost network environment and also have basic knowledge in Installation , configuration and administration of the network components such as firewall, proxy setting, Windows 7 and Windows 10, etc. 3. Overview The STT is a Standalone application program running on Microsoft Windows platform on personal computers. All data sets and result sets used by STT are maintained by its database. School users can use STT to import/export an interface file (with encryption) to perform data exchange with WebSAMS.

6 Architecture of STT. The STT is required to connect to the database to store and retrieve the data sets and result sets. The database shall be embedded in the STT installer and executed locally and automatically. Figure 1 shows the architecture of STT. A data exchange file exported from the WebSAMS as an encrypted file can be imported into STT and vice versa. Copyright 2017. Education Bureau. The Government of the HKSAR. Page 1.

Data Exchange WebSAMS Server File Database PC (School owned device) for the Standalone Timetabling Tool Figure 1 Architecture of STT. Installation Requirement Since most schools are equipped with Personal Computers (PC) and Microsoft (MS) Windows for the teacher / staff to carry out their daily work, the STT is developed to run on PC with Microsoft Windows platform, such that STT can run on existing PC of the schools.

7 The overall required specification of STT is described in Table 1. For details of hardware and software specification of STT, please refer to Appendix 1. Hardware and Software Specification. Table 1 Environment description of STT. Environment Machine Hardware Platform Production Standalone PC x86-based CPU of Intel i3 series or above Microsoft Windows 1G RAM free memory Desktop 7, 8 or 10. 20G free hard disk space The PC should be configured with standard Microsoft Windows user right, to allow users to install and access his/her profile and installed applications. The STT application (including binary files and related libraries), related Java run-time and database server should be installed on the user accessible area. In order to support both 32-bits and 64-bits Microsoft Windows platforms, the application Installation package with 32-bit version is provided. 4. STT Installation The Installation file allows user to install the STT along with its dependencies onto the computer.

8 It is recommended to meet the hardware and software required as described in Appendix 1. Copyright 2017. Education Bureau. The Government of the HKSAR. Page 2. All Rights Reserved.
