System and Method for optimizing disparate tasks based on resource availability and processes

Disclosed is a system and method for optimizing disparate tasks based on resource availability and processes.

Currently the way to manage a list of tasks effectively is very onerous, the person who has a list of "tasks to do" has to figure out the most effective way to complete the list of tasks. For example, if a person has 3 tasks to do: buy groceries, get tires changed, go to the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to get a new license, the person doing the task would have to figure out how to get these done in the most efficient manner. When considerations include time, traffic, wait times or other delays in the act of

carrying out the task itself, it becomes a herculean effort for someone to get these tasks

done as efficiently as possible.

Disclosed is a centralized system that takes as input a list of tasks needed to be performed in a given time period and produces the most efficient way to go about doing these tasks.

The system monitors a variety of parameters on a current and historic basis including:
Traffic patterns.


1.

Time to destination.


2.

Requirements (what forms need to be ready, where can those be done along the


3.

way).

Time to complete the task after arrival.

Time to reach the next stop.

Parallel tasks that can be performed (possibly taking data from the user's calendar);


6.

ideally, calendar integration is enabled, the tasks that the user entered can also take those into account when suggesting optim...
