Abstract An elevator system having cars in service at top and bottom in a single shaft is provided with a shaft assignment finalizing unit for selecting a shaft and a car to be assigned to a new call, and a reassigning unit for reassigning a car as necessary when a new call occurs after assignment is performed. After tentative assignment is finalized, if a new call is generated before a time for finalizing a stop of a tentatively assigned car is reached, then the tentative assignment is reviewed. If it is determined that reassigning of cars is necessary for a call, then the reassigning unit changes car assignment to the call. Assignment of a car is finalized by the car assignment finalizing unit, and information regarding a final decision is displayed by a display controller.
