The aim of this paper is to present an evolution of a Scheduling Decision Support System (SDSS) incorporating the concepts of Scalable Intelligence and Adaptation. The purpose of our work is to contribute for DSS enhancement in the field of production plan and control, and via its practical exploitation pursuit better performance of production managers and consequent increase industrial systems efficiency and productivity.
