Integration – LMBR

(updated 24/10/2017)

TimeChart’s vendor on-boarding process has begun. On-boarding requires the vendor to implement a 3PI interface for their application. Subsequently, testing with the Department’s systems.
Once the vendor is on-boarded to 3PI, the Department encourages the vendor to on-board their schools.

Vendor on-boarding involves three remaining tests:Vendor on-boarding involves three remaining tests:

  • Logging onto DoE systems
  • Two way data transfer
  • Testing the application’s functionality via 3Pi

This process is now underway with our first NSW State Government High School.

The NSW Department of Education is currently implementing a standardised student administration system for all NSW Public Schools as part of the Learning Management and Business Reform (LMBR). As part of this process, TimeChart will be implementing a new, SIF-based, LMBR 3rd party implementation function.

Within TimeChart, this new function will referred to as the ‘LMBR-SIF‘ export and is located within the ‘Main Menu > Export…’ menu as follows:

LMBR Development Program

The process for development and timeline is as follows

Stage 1

Development of a web-based API which TimeChart will use to ‘GET’ (receive) and ‘POST’ (send) timetable data to a test website known as ‘HITS’. This website ‘simulates’ the new NSW 3rd party integration system (3PI).

Current Status: Web API v1 in test phase

Anticipated completion date: July 21, 2017

Stage 2

Review of TimeChart’s web-based API functionality by the NSW Department of Education with a view to confirmation of successful data transfer. This process will involve rigorous testing in a simulated School environment. Confirmation/completion will lead to TimeChart being listed as an ‘Available Timetabling Package’ in your school LMBR portal.

Current Status: awaiting completion of Stage 1

Anticipated completion date: early August 2017

Stage 3

Update to TimeChart will be made available to all customers with a valid Support Plan free-of-charge. TimeChart will also be available to demonstrate this new functionality, live, at booth #40 at the 2017 NSWDPA Conference to be held from Wednesday 30 August to Friday 1 September at the Hyatt Regency, Sydney.

Current Status: awaiting completion of Stage 2

Anticipated completion date: October 30, 2017
