Abstract: This paper presents LEDAS Scheduler 3.0, a new version of the environment for specification, modification and resolution of scheduling problems in PLM. Version 3.0 is based on the new LSE engine that improves efficiency of solution due to new high performance algorithms designed by our company. The paper presents basic information about the project: its architecture, algorithms and results of testing. It also examines the possibilities for integration of the Scheduler by the example of two LEDAS projects: MORE+, a client-server system for automated meeting scheduling on conventional and mobile platforms, and a project scheduling system for the Eclipse platform.

Keywords: PLM; scheduling; project management; resource planning; meeting organising; mathematical solvers; product lifecycle management.
