    The paper examines the use of knowledge-based techniques to generate a framework for the active rescheduling of an automated guided vehicle system in a manufacturing environment. The authors' approach to active rescheduling uses 'cues' drawn from events on the shop-floor to trigger rescheduling. Simulation experiments are used to capture knowledge about the shop-floor and various scheduling strate... View full abstract»

    The paper describes an approach to resource management in uncertain domains, which is based on the concept of temporal influence. The Distributed Interactive Scheduling with Abstractions Project is aimed at building a scheduling system designed to address the uncertainties of real-world domains. The system has two main features; it is distributed, taking a multi-agent view, and it uses a solution ... View full abstract»

    It has been more than a decade since the first intelligent scheduling system ISIS was reported. Numerous intelligent scheduling systems have been developed since then, in the USA and in Europe, new search techniques have been invented, new theoretical results are emerging, and scheduling applications have been developed from general-purpose toolkits. This paper summarises achievements in intellige... View full abstract»

    It has been argued that the use of constraint-based techniques and tools enables the implementation of precise, flexible efficient and extensible scheduling systems; precise and flexible as the system can take into account any constraint expressible in the constraint language; efficient in as much as highly optimised constraint propagation procedures are now available; extensible as the considerat...
