[DMANET] Just-in-time systems book by Springer

I am happy to announce that the book "Just-in-time systems" has
recently been published by Springer.

Whether different types of costs are to be reduced, benefits to be
maximized or scarce resources to be managed, scheduling theory
provides intelligent methods for practitioners and scientists. The
just-in-time (JIT) production philosophy has enriched the classical
scheduling theory with models that consider characteristics such as
inventory costs, set-up times, lot sizing, or maintenance.
This edited volume considers the specifics of just-in-time systems. It
provides knowledge and insights on recent advances in scheduling
theory where just-in-time aspects are considered. Contributions on
models, theory, algorithms, and applications, that bring the theory
up-to-date on the state-of-the-art of JIT systems are presented.

Best regards,
