Abstract

The full spectrum of time management challenges and approaches is found in contemporary space operations. The performance data indicates discrepancies between planned and actual accomplishments. A common strategy to ensure available tasks is to provide gross times for categorically different activities (such as sleep and exercise) and a prioritized list of tasks to be carried out. Because "the labor rate" is very high, it behooves the planners to adopt contemporary approaches to time management, while allowing discretion based on local knowledge. Work has been started on the construction of a "microgravity pre determined time system" and the application of CPM and discrete event simulation approaches.
