About the book

The time management book project is addressing topics for which time is considered, in explicit manner, an important functionality of the system or human activities. among other topics, the book will include: real time operation of systems; automation in systems; optimization in complex system, taking explicit consideration in time constraints; scheduling of tasks and operations; decision making with incomplete data; applications of time management in different practical cases.
Time limitations for making appropriate decisions for management and control lead to the implementation of autonomic functionalities as self-configuration, self-optimization, self-healing, self-protection in computer systems, transportation systems, distributed systems. This book aims to provide an insight into applications and solutions for the domains of modeling, simulation and optimization (MSO) which address time as important and expensive resource. Applications in the domains of information systems, transportation, logistics, decision making in financial investments, computer systems and control systems will also be included.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mrs. Ketrin Polesak

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.
