Abstract: In the Smt. Chandaben Mohanbhai Patel Institute of Computer Applications, Charusat, allocation of subjects to faculties at the start of each new semester of academy year is a complex and tedious process. We propose a decision support system that attempts to maximize satisfactions for the overall faculty group. The system is able to improve the satisfaction level to 80%, even though some of the subjects may be heavily prioritized by faculty. Concept of Data Mining is used and it is shown to be effective. Results of subject allocation by the system have been positive. The system will greatly reduce the complex manual work of Principal/HoD for subject allocation. In addition, it will result in significant time saving for the Institute’s Subject Allocation Committee.
