Design and implement an Elevator Scheduler to aim for both correctness and performance, in managed code.

Skills to learn and practice:

a)       Peer to peer collaboration

b)       Requirement Analysis

c)       Design by contract, Interface design and comprehension

d)       Test Driven Development, Unit Test

e)       Algorithm design

f)        Implementation

 

 

1. Background

Imagine we’re building a tall office building, it has the following configuration about elevators:

Building has 21 floors, 4 elevators, many passengers use these elevators everyday (passenger weight: average 70kg. max 120kg, min 45kg).

Other constant data: Elevator speed, door open/close time, passenger time for going in/out of the elevator.  We can make reasonable assumptions about these.

The building has 21 floors, from floor 0, 1, ... to 20.  Floor 0 is the underground parking level, floor 1 is the lobby level. Most people come in/out the building via these 2 floors.

2.  Requirement to Student pairs

A framework with a naive algorithm is prepared and shared to students.  The core task for students is to design and implement the scheduling algorithm.  Students need to write their own scheduler class (implements the IScheduler interface), Update the SchedulerFactory.CreateScheduler method so the test framework can instantiate your class.

TA will come up with a consistent testing model to test your program according to the “rush hour” scenario (see below), and record the total travel time of each passengers.  

Total Travel Time = the time delta between the passenger appears in front of the elevator, and the time she gets off the elevator at this designated floor.

You (student pair) have:

1)      A set of API

2)      A naive solution (BUS program)

3)      A set of test cases to run

 

Explanation of BUS program:

We can have a naive algorithm called “BUS”.   BUS algorithm treats an elevator as a bus, it goes from bottom to top, stops at every floor, opens its door, to let people in and out (if any), then closes the door and moves on.  After it reaches the top floor, it will go down and stop at each floor again.  This algorithm can serve all requests, but it’s apparently not the fastest algorithm.

Your code is required to be managed code (C#, managed C++, etc).

It has to generate 0 (zero) VS Code Analysis warnings and errors.

It has to be correct

It has to be fast

Score guideline:  TA will evaluate the “average total travel time” for all passengers in the same test case, the lower, the better.  If your performance is slower than “bus” solution, you get 0 points; if your program can’t deliver any passenger to the correct destination, you get 0 points.

One hint about elevator scheduling: When total weight is within 45 kg of the max limit, or the number of passengers is already at maximum, the elevator doesn’t need to stop for more external requests.

The elevator scheduler program doesn’t know how many passengers are waiting on each floor, it doesn’t know how many passengers will show up either.  This is the same with the real world situation.

please consider these scenarios:

a) XiaoMing  arrives at floor 1,  he needs to go to floor 19,  he presses the “up” button in the waiting area.  a while later, elevator #2 (this elevator can reach floor 0 to floor 10)  opens its door,  should XiaoMing go in elevalor #2?   if so, when he enters the elevaltor #2, which floor should he press?  where should he go out?  In your program,  which classes need to change to build in such logic?

 

3. Testing

TA will simulate a “rush hour” (上下班高峰时刻) test. The “rush hour” test is to simulate the come-to-work and leave-work scenario in a business building, which has the following 2 parts (they can be run next to each other).

1) Simple test. 20 passengers

20 people going thru random floors within 5 minutes.  

2) Come-to-work. 1000 total passengers

a)   80% of them goes from floor 0 and 1 to all other floors, the destination is distributed evenly.  The time each passenger arrives at the elevator can be emulated as a normal distribution.

b)   20% of them are going between any 2 floors of [2, 20], very few people travel between 2 adjacent floors (e.g. from floor 5 to 4).  Other than this, the distribution is also even.

3) Leave-work. 1000 total passengers

a)   90% of them go from other floors to floor 1 or floor 0.

b)   10% of them travel between floors [2, 20], again, Very few people travel between 2 adjacent floors.
