The O-OSCAR software architecture is a problem solving environment for complex scheduling problem that is based on a constraintbasedrep resentation. On top of this core representation a problem solver module and a schedule execution system guarantee a complete support to address a scheduling problem. Furthermore, a rather sophisticated interaction module allows users to maintain control on different phases of schedule management.
