About the book

This book will aim to synthesize the analytic principles with business practice of Decision Making and provide an interface between the main disciplines of engineering/technology and the organizational, administrative, and planning abilities of decision making, acting as a complementary to other sub-disciplines such as economics, finance, marketing, decision and risk analysis, etc. The chapter authors are encouraged to introduce and demonstrate decision making theory and practice case studies, as well as key results for each sector with diverse real-world case studies, to accompany theory with relevant analysis techniques, progressional approach building from simple theory to complex and dynamic decisions with multiple data points, including big data, lot of data, etc. Computational techniques, dynamic analysis, probabilistic methods, and mathematical optimization techniques are also advised for a support analysis of multi-criteria decision-making problems with defined constraints and requirements.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Mia Miskulin

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
