Abstract
This paper presents a library of problem-solving methods dedicated to production scheduling, and reports our experience in applying the libr ary to the development of a real-life system. The library consists of three loosely coupled sub-systems: a manufacturing domain model, sched uling methods and graphical user interfaces. The domain model provides fundamental concepts to be employed by the other two sub-systems. In particular, the relationship between scheduling methods as articulated in terms of the structural relations among concepts in the domain mod el. Application systems developed with the library can be extended by modifying the configurations of the sub-systems and elaborating the co ncepts in each sub-system. The reusability of the library is investiga ted in terms of the ratio of code reuse in a real case. Finally, we co mpare our approach with related studies, and draw implications for des igning domain-oriented libraries of problem-solving methods, taking ac count of the transition of knowledge-modelling perspectives.
