Abstract: The work presented in this paper highlights how a real scheduling problem can be considered as a process avoiding the traditional operation research-based approach. Understanding the scheduling problem as a dynamic, uncertain and continuous process, in order to reduce the gap between reality and academic models, new conceptual elements emerge. The framework includes methodologies, concepts, architecture, and algorithms, which are based on the idea of a multiagent system in which planning-scheduling relationship is the core proposal. From the framework a software platform has been developed and tested in real industry.

Keywords: Planning-Scheduling collaboration, Framework, Multiagent.
