This book provides a theoretical and application-oriented analysis of deterministic scheduling problems in advanced planning and computer systems. The text examines scheduling problems across a range of parameters: job priority, release times, due dates, processing times, precedence constraints, resource usage and more, focusing on such topics as computer systems and supply chain management. Discussion includes single and parallel processors, flexible shops and manufacturing systems, and resource-constrained project scheduling. Many applications from industry and service operations management and case studies are described. The handbook will be useful to a broad audience, from researchers to practitioners, graduate and advanced undergraduate students.

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)
