Smart time conflict solvers and event time managers are some of the essential tools for educational institutions that can help students to attend events, which might time conflict with a lecture or other activities to gain advantage of the opportunities enriching their professional benefits. Normally, an institutional timetable may encounter certain time conflicts that remain undiscovered until the time of students’ registration. Therefore, a smart and an innovative approach in terms of a software package is implemented and described in this paper. The developed software uses smart and efficient searching methods for achieving an optimum time match between any number or group of students and under any specified constraints. Consequently, the devised event organizer can find an optimum time to allocate for the event by finding an optimum time at which the majority of the intended people are free for the event. In addition, students who struggle with time conflicts between two or more courses can also find the most suitable times in which their time conflicts are resolved. The software searches for classes by locating the time and courses intersections between all the students who are associated with such conflicts. These time conflict processes are difficult to handle manually and may be prone to errors.
