The increasing intense of the economic constraints forces the manufacturers to share their resources with other organizations . But the management of the available periods of shared resources causes a problem because it is mostly realized in a centralized way . Therefore, distributed scheduling with shared resources is nowadays an important research topic. In this paper, we present a multi-agent model named SCEP (Supervisor, Customer, Environment and Producer). We also introduce the detailed architecture and behavior of the SCEP model in the context of multi-site and shared resources situation. The SCEP application proposed here, aims at improving the scheduling of shared resources in a hospital framework.
