The purpose of this work is to design and implement a domain specific framework to be used in the implementation of scheduling algorithms for manufacturing environments. Developers of scheduling algorithms are faced with several tasks that are inherent to any software development, but do not add value to the problem being addressed. Moreover, different scheduling algorithms present some similarities, for example, they might share a uniform data model. In light of these considerations, a framework has been created to provide functionalities commonly encountered in the implementation of scheduling algorithms. This framework has been tested in the implementation of a number of scheduling algorithms, showing that its use greatly simplifies the implementation task, allowing developers to focus on the algorithm itself instead of other peripheral tasks.
