RABELO, Ricardo J.  and  KLEN, Alexandra A. Pereira. Cooperative inter-organizational scheduling. Gest. Prod. [online]. 2000, vol.7, n.3, pp.226-246. ISSN 0104-530X.

This work aims at presenting an approach for agile scheduling coordination and supervision of distributed production orders, giving rise to a new dimension of the scheduling activity, not only under the intra-organizational perspective, but also the inter-organizational, comprising the whole productive chain. It generally presents a prototype being developed, based on the paradigms of multi-agent negotiation and decision support systems. Aspects related with the information modeling and integration in the several levels of CIM are tackled. At the end, a series of considerations is made, pointing out the results reached with the current prototype, and the several difficulties - and challenges - existent for the accomplishment of cooperative inter-organizational scheduling.

Keywords : scheduling; virtual enterprise; supply chain management; multi-agent systems; integration; decision support systems.
