Five research papers describing findings and recommendations associated with the management components of the court scheduling model are presented.
This volume is part of a research study entitled 'Decision Related Research on Technology Utilized by Local Government Court Scheduling.' The first phase of the research consisted of a survey of the state-of-the-art of court scheduling, development of a comprehensive scheduling model, and identification of areas in need of further research and development. The second phase, the project team sought to fill some of the identified voids through research, development, and technology transfer. The results of those efforts are described in the three-volume final report, of which this work constitutes volume II. Volumes I and III focus on methodology, accomplishments, findings, conclusions, and scheduling softwear description, respectively. The five papers in volume II address the value of greater predictability in scheduling, issues in scheduling management, systems analysis in a court, and a case study. The titles are: Improving the Calendaring Process Through More Precise Assignment of Event Duration; Performance Implications of Selecting a Case Assignment System and Calender Mode; Issues in Court Scheduling Management; and Case Studies in the Transfer of Scheduling Technology. Appendixes, exhibits, and attachments including questionnaires, work plans, and judicial allocation models are included in the report. (Author abstract modified).
