Add Building

Screen Description

The Add Building screen provides interface for adding a new building.


  • Name
    • Name of the building
  • Abbreviation
    • Building abbreviation
  • External ID
    • External ID of the building (optional)
  • Coordinates
    • X and Y coordinates of the building (used in calculating distances between buildings)
      • Distance between two buildings is computed as Euclidean distance between coordinates × 10 meters (e.g., distance between coordinates [0,0] and [3,4] is 50 meters)
      • Coordinates cannot be negative
      • A building with no coordinates is assumed to be too far from any other building (for instructor and student back-to-back constraints)

Note: If you do not have coordinate system established, entering the same coordinates (e.g., [0,0]) for all buildings will ensure that there will be no "too far" instructor and student back-to-back constraint violations in the problem.


  • Save (ALT+S)
    • Save a new building and go back to the Buildings screen
  • Back (ALT+B)
    • Go back to the Buildings screen without saving anything
