Abstract

S.O.S. a shell for opportunistic scheduling in manufacturing environments E. Paolucci/ G. Gini^ M. Possa & S. Preda " Department of Economics and Production, Politecnico di Milano, P.zza L. Da Vinci 32 20133 Milano, Italy * Department of Electronics and Information, Politecnico di Milano ABSTRACT The work describes a scheduling system based on an opportunistic framework. It exploits the potentiality of a predictive module that provides a-priori information about the conflicts that may arise in a schedule, managing a constraint based approach in problem solving. The system SOS has been designed and realized to apply in real productive environments this theoretical approach. Requirements of efficiency and flexibility of use have been particularly considered. GUIDELINES AND SCHEDULING STRATEGIES IN SOS In this paper we will present an approach to scheduling problems which is focused on the requirements of real manufacturing environments. Therefore we co
