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
