The scheduling process involves many actors representing different manufacturing perspectives, such as management, customer-service, manufacturing, quality assurance and distribution. There is a great need to give support to those actors. In this work we propose to address the scheduling problem through a collaborative framework Our model considers the interaction between an agent based scheduling module and a group decision support module. The agent based scheduling module encapsulate several scheduling algorithms generating a set of candidate solutions, each one of them according a specific criteria. The group decision support module supports the interaction between the scheduling actors envisaging the selection of a scheduling solution.
