Series as Building Blocks - Part 2

When a schedule request specifies to some degree the number of games per opponent my first step is figuring out how to break them down into series, preferably mostly 3-game series and some 4-game.  If the games per opponent are not prescribed, I gravitate toward numbers that make for an easier series breakdown.

Series as Schedule Building Blocks - Part 1

Schedules are about teams playing games.  But typically for me individual games are not considering during much of the process.  For most of the way I only care about series rather than the individual games that compose series.

The fewer independent parts to have to manage and manipulate, the easier the process is.  That theme will be recurring.
