ULISSE is an EU project that aims at data valorization around the ISS experiments. The ULISSE software platform is endowed with a number of additional services to improve both data production and data analysis. This paper describes the Planning and Scheduling Service (PSS), a module developed to support functions of data production around the ISS activities and integrated in the ULISSE platform. In particular, the PSS is a software application developed within the Timeline Representation Framework and relies on a combination of different P&S algorithms in a loosely coupled way. Its current use to support Increment Planning activities for the Fluid Science Laboratory facility is shown and fully analyzed from design to application service delivery.
