The time table assembly is problem in which the feasibility of solutions involves solution of a graph coloring problem while the quality of solution is obtained by optimization of a fitness function. In this paper the time table assembly was done using the method of local optimization. For this purpose a special fitness function was developed with regard to the soft constraints of the particular problem.
