of discrete technological and information processes
(IT AC DTIP or Technology)

Note. The alternative presentation of IT AC DTIP, published on the website www.slideshare.net, you can find here.

1. Purpose and scope of Technology

IT AC DTIP is intended to solve problems of effective control of discrete technological and information processes (DTIPs) of various purpose. Each such process, that is included in the scope of Technology, can be either infinite stationary, or limited in time (the process of network and calendar planning), or instantaneous (the process of selecting choices). It is characterized by the following three properties:

2. The essence of Technology

In the work [1], published in 1996, its author M.V. Burlakov first put forward the idea of creating IT AC DTIP. The basis of Technology is a uniform scientific methodology of numerical optimization of stationary discrete processes of service (DPSs) [2, 3], that provides fulfillment of the following three interconnected procedures:

The implementation to life of IT AC DTIP will provide a large economic and social effect from the use of highly effective strategies of control of discrete processes in various areas of human activity.

3. Areas of the practical use of Technology

Below are listed alphabetically possible areas of practical use of IT AC DTIP. Asterisks mark those of them, for which are already created software tools for optimizing discrete processes of relevant purposes. Those areas include:

1)   * budgeting based on program-target planning;

2)   * customer service in catering (particularly, in restaurants);

3)   * delivery of a passenger by public transport to his destination;

4)   * expenditure of money to various goods and services;

5)     impatient customers service;

6)   * investment of money in different sources of income;

7)     loading and unloading operations;

8)     maintenance of calls by emergency city services;

9)   * maintenance of geographically distributed objects;

10) * network planning in project management;

11) * planning of business operations in production and business;

12)   processing of workpieces on machines with changeover;

13) * purchase of housing;

14)   reconstruction of existing facilities;

15)   repair of process equipment;

16)   storage and processing of perishable products;

17) * trade in real estate;

18) * trade online;

19)   transmission of digital messages in communication networks;

20) * transportation.

4. Prospects of Technologies

Commercial, social and political prospects from the implementation of IT AC DTIP are caused by the following objective factors:

5. Implementation to life of Technology

The process of introducing to life of IT AC DTIP consists of two stages. In the first of them is created a network universal program toolkit (UPT) on optimizing control of narrow classes of the most common DTIPs which occur in various areas of human activity (see above). To the UPT is provided through Internet a mass paid access of network users to solve their tasks of optimizing control of specific discrete processes. All calculations will be performed here in a network processing center (NPC). At that, preparation of the input data of tasks to be solved and output of results of their solution will be used with the help of automated work places (AWPs), distributed free among the interested users, which are the means of access to NPC

To ensure the rapid implementation to life of this UPT without the involvement of a lot of money for that, it is proposed to use for this purpose the principle of network marketing. The essence of it in this case is to create a network of dealers who will be given a right to enter into direct commercial agreement with potential users in various application areas on solving optimization tasks (Fig. 1).

Between the side of developers and the dealers will also be concluded contracts, in which, in particular, is specified a tariff at which the calculations are performed. Thus, each dealer will have an incentive to find their clients and to conclude an agreement with them on mutually beneficial terms. This will ensure the promotion of this UPT via Internet among the international community of interested users.

In the second stage of implementing Technology is created a specialized production company on its inculcation and widespread promotion. It will consist of the center of toolkit development (CTD) and the network of centers of control automation (CCAs) in directions of Technology introduction [1] (Fig. 2).

The purpose of functioning of a separate CCA is the development and implementation of highly effective strategies of DTIPs control in a particular application area. CTD and CCAs will have the following interconnection between them: CTD develops optimizing tools, as well as mathematical models and algorithms of optimization, and CCA provides to CTD necessary information about the tasks to be solved, that allows to create new program systems and develop software for those models of DTIPs, which optimization is impossible by using the available program toolkit.

Such approach in the organization of work of development and implementation of IT AC DTIP allows in the shortest time to master the market of all those tasks of ensuring the efficient control of DTIPs, for which solution is purposed Technology.

A necessary condition for the creation of the abovementioned company is to have a team of associates that will establish it. Each member of this team will be responsible for certain activities of the company. The presence of an investor here is highly desirable, but not necessary, because Technology is a network one and we have already created the UPT for optimizing DTIPs of many purposes.

6. Current results of Technology development

To date, the following main results on IT AC DTIP are obtained:

7. Strategic plan for implementation of Technology

Two alternative versions of this plan are proposed:
