Comparison of some computer-based task management approaches

  • Antonio Diaz-Calderon (a1) and Chris Hendrickson (a2)

Abstract

This article presents an assessment of four management systems to expose the essential characteristics of each management system, including planning techniques, problem representation, concurrency, and flexibility. The experimental part of the research shows that existing management systems can be used to attack a variety of problems. The authors conclude that flexible planning systems are quite beneficial since they can be used to solve a variety of design problems by making small modifications in the definition of their tools.
