About this book

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.    

Reviews

From the reviews:

"What distinguishes the present book by Blazewicz et al. from a number of other new and interesting books on scheduling is its emphasis on the relevance of academic research to practical applications, which is precisely manifested in its title. … Overall, the reviewed book … is a very significant contribution to literature on scheduling and a must for anyone who is involved in the field as a student, researcher or practitioner. I heartily recommend it for study." (Eugene Levner, Journal of Scheduling, Vol. 12, 2009)
