Event Management is one of the most lucrative and growing professions today. At present event management is done by humans. With the growing demand for managing large events, there is a rising demand for building intelligent systems to manage events. The so called event management systems today are only data processing systems that are unable to carry out decision making task on their own. Event management systems today do not consider emergencies and risk assessment as part of their execution. In this paper, we present an approach for representing events and monitor their execution. In particular, discuss the exceptions that can occur during an event execution and how they can be managed using event management rules. We present strategies for writing management rules that are used to handle problematic events and to build a DAG based programming system for event management. Our simulation results show how the performance of our event management system performs with the exception management rules.
