This handbook covers not only in a unified approach the most important scheduling models and methods, it also put special emphasis to their relevance to practical situations. Many applications from industry and service operations management and case studies are described. Because the book offers some preliminaries concerning basic notions from discrete mathematics, it can also be used by beginners. As a consequence, the handbook is an indispensable source for a broad audience, ranging from researchers to practitioners, graduate and advanced undergraduate students in computer science/engineering, operations research, industrial and real-time engineering, management science, business administration, information systems, and applied mathematics curricula.
