The purpose of this article is to initiate a research in one of the main parts of time management, which is an extremely useful activity that implies an
effective use of personal time. Namely, we propose to include
optimal scheduling algorithms into time management techniques.
Specifically, we consider a time management system including two
persons, one of which is a supervisor. In scheduling theory,
such a processing system may be modeled as a two-machine flowshop
with the objective of minimizing the makespan. Due to the
specificity of the scheduling process for a person, it is assumed
that the job processing times may be uncertain before scheduling.
Moreover, for time management, it is necessary to consider on-line
scheduling along with usual off-line scheduling for a set of jobs
to be completed by a person during a day.
